Correfoc

Sunday, 24 September, 2017

The annual Santa Tecla celebrations end with an event called Correfoc, which means “fire running”. Catalonia’s streets fill up with characters dressed as devils and dragons spitting fire, with brave spectators running in and out between them. Meanwhile, giant male and female figures are marched around the streets to the ear-piercing sounds of the traditional tible and tenora, tarota and gralla.
