Enjoy the incredible Apostol's fireworks of Santiago's festivities with Hotel Scala
The 25th of July is approaching, a great day in Galicia because it is the feast of its patron, Santiago Apóstol. The city of Compostela is already ready to celebrate, as every year its festivities. And it is precisely on the night of July 24 to 25 that the most awaited moment of all this celebration takes place: the fireworks and the audiovisual spectacle in the Plaza del Obradoiro. At Hotel Scala we discover the secrets of one of the most special days of the year in the capital of Galicia and we encourage you to come and contemplate all its magic live when you stay with us.
Without doubt it is one of the days of the year in which Santiago becomes, if possible, more magical. The bustle of its streets, the attractions, the activities around the parties, ... Santiago is decorated to honor his employer and as every year, he has prepared a show of lights of the most special. In addition, throughout the day there is a whole program of activities that will make you enjoy the party from noon.
The fireworks illuminate Santiago from the night of 24 to 25 in a tradition that seems, comes from the sixteenth century, when the Plaza del Obradoiro was lit with colorful candles to mark the beginning of the holidays. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries there was already in the square a fire show as such that combined pyrotechnics with what was known as the "burning of the castle."
Nowadays mysticism is mixed with technology to surprise every year the thousands of people who congregate in the Obradoiro to see the images projected on the facade of the Pazo de Raxoi (last year, since in 2020 they will return to be in the Cathedral). The projections narrate its history accompanied by music and combined with impressive fireworks that illuminate the night of Compostela and form an authentic and ephemeral work of art. Our advice is that if you want to see the show go before the square, choose a good place and prepare to enjoy this festival of lights, fires and lasers.
