Every summer, Spanish Mediterraneans celebrate the day of Sant Joan with screeching fireworks, demented devils, fire-breathing dragons and raging bonfires. Evil spirits are chased away by 'dimonis' - devils - and the public are allowed to join in with little respect for health and safety.

The origins of 'correfoc' - fire-running - date back to the 12th century. In Palma de Mallorca, as elsewhere in Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands, running with the devil eludes the attempts of the European Union to regulate its safety. It continues much as it always has.
