The San Sebastian International Firework Competition takes place during the Great Week (Aste Nagusia) in mid-August and it is an unavoidable event for firework lovers.

Los fuegos pueden verse desde muchas zonas de la ciudad, aunque lo más habitual es hacerlo desde el Paseo de la Concha y calles aledañas. ¡Y tras los fuegos, nada mejor ni más donostiarra que comerse un helado!


The resonance of these fireworks and their reflections on the waters of the sea make a magnificent display. This festival is so famous that it draws firework manufacturers from all over the world. It is customary to enjoy this magic light and sound show with an ice cream. The award ceremony takes place the last day of the Great Week and the celebration ends with a musical firework display.
