San Lorenzo Festival

Saturday 10 August

109, Partida la Olla, Altea, Comunidad Valenciana, 03590, Spain

Be one of the 50,000 people who descend on Castell de l’Olla in Altea to watch in awe a pyrotechnic display like no other. Held for over 35 years and now classified as a Festival of Regional Tourist Interest, this spectacular event should be squeezed into your diary if possible. Imagine: The setting of the fireworks display is a platform floating in the Mediterranean which is then set off, creating a multicoloured night canvas reflected across the sea. And it doesn’t end there! Music from a live orchestra is choreographed to the display adding to the sheer magnificence of it all.
