Hogueras de San Juan en la Playa de Riazor, A Coruña
Before the Roman conquest the inhabitants of the Iberian Peninsula celebrated the arrival of summer with bonfires on the shortest night of the year, varying traditions from one place to another, but keeping pagan tradition despite attempts to delete or adapt it to Christianity. The Bonfires of San Juan are particularly rooted in Galicia, where it is tradition to jump 9 times over the fire to bring good luck and get rid of the spells of the Meigas (Witches). In La Coruna, the tradition of hundreds of bonfires lit Riazor beach and various city neighborhoods, leading to a magnificent spectacle with all the beach on fire.
