My personal favorite fiesta is the Fire Fiesta. It takes place in late August and celebrates the patron saint of Soller, Saint Bartholomew.

A group called the Esclatabutzes puts on an incredible show that, quite literally, happens all around you. The “correfoc” or “fire-run” has become one of the most impressive shows on the entire island.

Once the “show” is done the locals move down to just in front of the market where they have a fire truck waiting to spray water into the crowd. Most people leave without seeing this part but it is a lot of fun for those who are willing to get wet!!
