Nit del foc

They burnt the 178 monuments, created especially for the hogueres, in Alicante last night.


Lighting the main one (the creation of Fran Esplá) was achieved with the help of 40 kilogrammes of explosives, 25 litres of petrol and 15 of paraffin. The structure, which was made of wood, enabled the fire to last 45 minutes; longer than any other cremà has in the past.

The final fires were extinguished at 4:30am this morning.
