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!!
This celebration is held to commemorate the victory of the locals against the Moorish invaders that took place on May 11, 1561.
It is a 2-part fiesta beginning in the port. The locals dress up as Moors and Christians and the Moors come in on boats and have a “fight” on the beach.
Later in the day it then moves to the square where the locals finally defeat the Moors in an incredible “battle” – Its a lot of fun to watch but don’t forget your ear plugs because it is very, very loud!!
This is one fiesta you must see at least once!
