Bonfires of San Juan

Bonfires of San Juan

Three "bonfires" or commissions exist in Dénia the “Foguera El Bassot”, the “Foguera L'Hort” and the “Foguera Les Portelles”. In spite of the fact that the papier mâché monuments are the most common things to be burnt on the night of San Juan, there are still places, such as the street of “Les Portelles”, where the tradition of burning something old is still kept. Music invades the city and, after the pilgrimage to the hermitage of San Juan, open-air dances, games and a procession are celebrated.
