May 15th. It’s the first Monday after the second Sunday in May. In Soller that can only mean one thing – It’s Fiesta Day, El Firo.
A chance to celebrate the victory by the Christians over the Moors in 1561.
This year I decided not to get involved. My plan was to just sit outside the hotel with a pint in my hand and watch the parade pass by.
Of course I had my camera with me and took a few images. Here’s what was going on.
This year there seemed to be more people involved. It was very good natured, but noisy. I kept out of it.Well, almost.
