The event of San Juan is celebrated all over the country. In Barcelona, it is a traditional celebration that everybody does it his or her own way. Going with family or friends for dinner, playing music and lighting bonfires.
The celebration worships the sun, by the arrival of the summer solstice.
With the lighting of the fires, the celebrations begin in the squares and streets of the neighborhoods of Barcelona, dinners, pyrotechnic shows, dances and much fun until dawn.
The event of the night of San Juan in the city of Barcelona is very old, especially with the central presence of the bonfires, because it is a common belief that the flames distract and frighten the evil spirits that come during this night.
