Experience the magic of the Noche de San Juan in Conil

Welcome to summer

San Juan is here. Summer is approaching, a season longed for, loved and, above all, celebrated. The arrival of summer is celebrated all over the world and there are many fun-filled rituals to celebrate this long-awaited event.

As an example, in a Scandinavian country like Sweden this holiday, called Midsommar, which is the most important of the year after Christmas, takes place in the countryside and consists of games, endless lunches and flowers in the hair. Much further afield, in the southern hemisphere, this day is celebrated onĀ Inti RaymiInti, a festival of worship to the Inca sun god, Inti, which marks the arrival of the winter solstice.

Already in our country, in the St. John's Eve, June 23rd, Christianity is mixed with the pagan, since this celebration is usually combined with the commemoration of the summer solstice. Here, to welcome the summer, tradition calls for bathing in the sea or river or jumping over a bonfire, among many other activities.

Juanes and Juanas

And what happens in the Costa de la LuzHow to celebrate Conil this holiday? Well, celebrate it and in a big way. This night is one of the most animated of the summer, for this reason it represents a perfect occasion to make a weekend getaway to this town in the coast of CadizThe town, which is flooded with magic, fire, spells and moonlight baths.

In the atmospheric center of this town of Cadiz is celebrated the Juanes and JuanasThe puppets will end up in a large bonfire and humorously represent everything that has happened in the municipality or in the country. This party is completed with lively parades, which fill streets, squares and the beach of people looking for a good time full of joy and fun and attracted by the enigmatic magic of fire.

Bonfires of San Juan

In addition, when midnight comes, the beaches are filled with bonfires that will drive away evil spirits and burn all bad omens. The most daring will jump over them, in order to make their wishes come true. Others will simply throw a small piece of paper into the fire where they write their wishes.

Another of the traditions for these dates is bathing while watching the moonThis is an activity that, according to those who understand witchcraft, attracts good luck. Thus, once again, the most daring will take a magnificent midnight swim regardless of the temperature of the sea, while the rest will be satisfied with approaching the shore to get their feet wet. In that sense, it is necessary to point out that scholars on the subject proclaim that both options are valid.
