The fires of Saint Jean are the object of very important festivities in the department of Pyrenees Orientales which makes it possible to celebrate the arrival of the summer. This holiday takes place on June 23, during the summer solstice.

A few days before, a party is held at the top of the mountain where we bring everything necessary to get a big fire on the night of the 23rd.

The flame is kept from one year to the next, at Castillet (representative monument of the city of Perpignan) this is the trigger for the festivities of Saint John, since all the villages will then light their own fire. 

This festival is traditionally accompanied by Catalan folklore including a local dance, Sardana.

Thus, for example, in the town of Argelès-sur-mer, you can discover Catalan concerts, sardana, but also shows and meals on the theme of Catalan culture.
