Fiestas de San Sebastian

Every year in late January the city of Palma de Mallorca, celebrates its official saint “San Sebastian” with a rousing display of correfocs (literal translation fire-runs) and a dance with the devils that ends with fireworks in front of the cathedral. This is one of my favorite traditions from Mallorca. And I am going to celebrate the correfocs this Saturday around 21.00.

This video captures the spirit and beauty of the Fiestas de San Sebastian. I have watched it, mmm only about ten times now. Can’t wait to see it in person!
