El Castell de l’Olla is flooding Altea with light

On Saturday at midnight Altea will become a Mediterranean cultural hub. Thousands of people will be coming together by the beach or on board a boat to enjoy El Castell de L’Olla, a fascinating musical pyrotechnical display.

A unique occasion to enjoy this small paradise on the Costa Blanca and lose yourself in the charming streets of its historic quarter, admire its eight kilometres of coastline with unique beaches and coves, or sample its delicious gastronomy based around the star ingredients of rice and fish.

With a tradition that stretches back 24 years, this spectacle that combines different art forms has been becoming increasingly more famous among residents and visitors to the Region of Valencia.
The incorporation of new elements such as dance has increased its aesthetic appeal, making the Playa del Castell de L’Olla beach an idyllic place where it is impossible not to be seduced by a perfect composition of music, dance and fireworks.
