The city is full of life during the longest night of the year, the eve of St. John's Day. All the neighbourhoods set up their 'cacharelas' or bonfires, which people use to keep the 'meigas' (witches) and evil spirits away on the summer solstice. Each neighbourhood competes to make the tallest bonfire, and when the fires are reduced to embers, early in the morning, everyone jumps over them, at least three times, for good luck. Sardines or chorizos are traditionally roasted over the bonfires
