Lumbre de los Quintos. New Year’s Eve

One year ends and another begins. It seems like an ordinary day and it is not; at midnight a great bonfire will be lit that will burn the last moments of the past, and will illuminate with good wishes the one to come.


Deleitosa celebrates the New Year with the lighting of a big fire. It is usually held in the Plaza Vieja, next to the Rollo.

Each year the Quintos are in charge of the realization and lighting of the bonfire. These are moments in which very important and beautiful things happen for the community and for the young people.

For the children it means the most important celebration of their coming of age, when the community makes them responsible for an important task: the celebration of the new year.

Every year there is a competition for who makes the biggest fire and for many years the girls have also participated in this event.
