An ancestral holiday
In the early hours of 22 at 23 in June the Flame of Canigó is renewed at the top of this mountain in the Catalan Pyrenees and hundreds of volunteers and fire teams distribute it throughout the Catalan Countries following several routes to light the bonfires at night of San Juan. Thus, year after year, the celebration of an ancestral holiday linked to the summer solstice begins, which is also a symbol of brotherhood between the Catalan-speaking territories.
