La Nit del Foc (or Night of Fire) is the biggest – and certainly the wildest – event on the island. Marking the summer solstice, this explosive fiesta takes place on the eve of the saint’s day of Sant Joan.
While celebrated all over Mallorca, Palma is where you’ll find the liveliest of the action – expect masked devils, deafening drums, and street parties galore. Watch out for the famous correfoc (or fire-run) when devilish revellers run through the streets with fireworks and firecrackers, and expect the partying to rage until the early hours.
Sant Joan is celebrated in various locations around the island.
