Tirada em 23-06-2012
Desde antes de la conquista romana los habitantes de la península Ibérica celebraban la llegada del verano mediante hogueras en la noche más corta del año, variando las tradiciones de un lugar a otro, pero manteniéndose la tradición pagana a pesar de los intentos del cristianismo por adaptarla o suprimirla. Las Hogueras de San Juan tienen especial arraigo en Galicia, donde es tradición saltar 9 veces sobre la hoguera para atraer la buena suerte y librarse de los hechizos de las Meigas (Brujas).  En la Coruña, es tradición que cientos de hogueras enciendan la playa de Riazor y los distintos barrios de la ciudad, dando lugar a un magnífico espectáculo con toda la playa ardiendo.

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.
