This photo taken by our own Án­gel Gar­cía of Ali­cante's Santa Bár­bara cas­tle shows one of the many im­pres­sive fire­work dis­plays that took place in the Va­len­cia re­gion as part of the San Juan cel­e­bra­tions last Fri­day night.

Around 300,000 peo­ple packed into Ali­cante city centre on Satur­day night to watch the fa­mous ‘cremà’ – the burn­ing of the painstak­ingly-made ef­fi­gies for the Hogueras festival. A to­tal of 178 of the satir­i­cal fig­ures were torched from mid­night into the early hours of Sun­day morn­ing.
