Traditional fiestas in Alicante

Alicante Bonfires 24th June

The Alicante Bonfires represent the open and passionate Mediterranean character of the people of Alicante. It all comes together on the night of San Juan.

People leave their daily lives behind for a few days and live the Fiesta on the streets of the city.

Fire, the central element of the festivity, turns a monument that has taken months to build using easily flammable materials, into a bonfire. This monument is the union of architecture, sculpture and painting, and it is accompanied by the ninots, grotesque figures that express social and political criticism.

The figure of the Woman is another of the main elements of the festivities of the Bonfires; the Bellea del Foc, gets to represent the women of Alicante for a whole year and she is acclaimed by the public on the streets during the parades.

In addition to the bonfire, the barraca is the place where all the events, both social and gastronomic, take place.

The closing event of the Bonfires, the Cremà, brings the festivity to an end on a magic night, where everybody enjoys the Fireworks Castle at the Postiguet Beach. The final tradition is to take a dip in the sea at daybreak.

Music, parades, fireworks, mascletá and bulls are all part of the festivities in the streets

Thousands of people are bewitched by fire and Fiesta, turning Alicante into an international centre of attraction.
