Summer firework displays!


As the summer season starts, the evening skies of North Catalonia whizz, pop and crackle to the sight and sound of fireworks displays, sometimes musical, sometimes echoing over sea and port, or illumating anicient bell towers, chateaux and mountain. Here is a list of some of the promised firework displays. Do check however with the local tourist office, that they will still be taking place on the day.

Also, just a little note on firework safety.  Please be aware that rules & regulations in France are much stricter than in the UK and certain fireworks you can buy in the UK may be banned in France, and for good reason.  For full details on rules & regulations in France. But, if in doubt, best to leave it to the experts and go to one of the many organised displays – there’s certainly no shortage of them:
