What to expect

In Catalunya, the arrival of summer coincides with the celebration of traditional popular open-air festivals. Leave the city behind you and see a different side of Catalonia on an evening trip from Barcelona to a traditional correfoc (fire-running) festival in a local village!

Watch villagers dressed as devils and dancing to the sound of the drums and of traditional music and turning the village into a fiery cauldron of light and fireworks. The Fire-running is a show of fire that waits until the sun is down to perform in an amazing fire parade. This represents the fight of the Good against the Evil.

An experienced native guide will show you the outfits and special clothes “devils” wear during their performance, how they light their sparklers and firecrackers, and explain the details behind this centenary and unique tradition. You can view all the action from the side lines or get involved like a local.
