The Bonfires of Saint John, celebrated on St. John’s Eve (Noche de San Juan) on the evening of 23 June, is a festival that’s both traditional and popular around the world.
It is customary in many cities and towns in Spain; the largest one takes place in Alicante (part of the Valencian Community) but Valencia’s isn’t that far behind. Valencia’s urban beaches are filled with hundreds of people celebrating this special night -that’s why there are always some guidelines for both locals and tourists so they all spend a fun, safe night.
Partying is allowed until 4 am and bonfires are permitted only in certain beaches. Good news is Metrovalencia, Valencia’s subway line, offers extended service all night long!
