A SPECTACULAR rainbow heralded the start of one of Spain’s best-loved summer festivals.
San Juan – otherwise known as the festival of fire – more than lived up to its nickname this week.
Bonfires and fireworks lit up the midnight sky over the Costa del Sol, with massive fiestas filling the streets of the coast’s towns.
Among the best vantage points were Sabinillas – with live music and a mini fairground – and Sonora, where the young and free-spirited treated themselves to a midnight dip and warmed themselves by the bonfire.
