Sarria’s bull fire on the night of the feast of Correfocs. Barcelone.

The Correfocs (“fire-runs”) are among the most striking features present in Catalan festivals. The picture was taken in Octuber, this year in Sarrià, Barcelone.
In the correfoc, a group of individuals will dress as devils and light fireworks. While dancing to the drums of a gralla (traditional flute), they will set off their fireworks among crowds of spectators. Here the fire bull, not allways present in the festivity, charges the public that challenges him to approach.
