Altea Castell de l'Olla Fireworks

The Castell de l'Olla is held in honour of San Lorenzo, on the second Saturday in August every year. This year it will take place on Saturday 12th August 2017. 

This free pyrotechnic extravaganza has delighted audiences of over 50,000 every year for the last 29 years! The setting for the event is the pebbled 1.4 kilometre long beach on the outskirts of Altea. Classed as semi rural the beach becomes a hive of activities as spectators arrive laden with chairs, tables and a nights supply of food. Through out the evening the atmosphere builds until midnight, when the show begins! The fireworks are set off from floating platforms and accompanied by a live orchestra. They are absolutely beautiful to watch as their colours and shapes reflect off the water.

Parking is a little difficult, so get there early to find a space. Alternatively take the tram, which puts on severl special services to l'Olla just for the fiesta. 

Saturday 12th August 23:55
Arrive early, enjoy an evening on the pebbled beach and the spectacular 30-40 minute firework display.
