Saturday 15th August 2015 – 22h30 – Saint Cyprien

Embrasement du port et spectacle pyrotechnique



One of the most talked about firework displays in the region, the ‘setting alight’ of the port and the firework extravaganza attract folk from far and wide. The display is preceded at 19h by a ‘sardinade’ when local fishermen share their sardine catch in this traditional Catalan feast of grilled sardines, bread and aioli (garlic dip).

Parking is difficult and be prepared for long queues when leaving – but the firework display is well worth the hassle!
