Thousands of bonfires were light on the beaches of the Valencian Community last night.
The fires are an act of purification on the event of the Summer solstice.
When these people are not burning fallas, they light bonfires. When they are not doing that they are setting off fireworks. Is it any wonder then that 8% of the population of Alicante (more than 25,000 people) have problem with their hearing according to the auditory centres of GAES.
