The Canigó Flame, the torch walk and the Contrapàs dance are the central events of the Sant Joan and the Elois de Prats de Lluçanes town festivals.

For Sant Joan's Day, Prats de Lluçanes not only celebrates the summer solstice but it also celebrates the town Festival of Sant Joan and the Elois. The festival starts with the arrival of the flame from the Canigó, a town parade with fire as the protagonist and the lighting of the bonfire. The following morning, Sant Joan's Day as well as on the 25th, the Elois Day, the festival focuses on more traditional events. Don't miss the Petardàs, the torch walk or the Contrapàs dance!
