San Juan night

The night of San Juan, which welcomes the summer season, is an ancient tradition celebrated every year in various towns in Spain.  San Juan night coincides with the Summer solstice and it’s the welcome to Summer. This celebration takes place during the shortest night of the year in almost all cities and towns of Spain.

Below is a selection of photos from this year’s San Juan night by photographers on assignment for the Associated Press: Andres Kudacki, Manu Fernandez and Alvaro Barrientos.
