There are a few days left until St. John’s Eve, the night that celebrates the summer solstice, the time when the sun is in its northernmost position.

It is surely the most magical night of the year and perhaps also the night around which almost all the cultures of the world have been creating traditions.

This new gallery of images collects photographs of the fest of Sant Joan that come from the Archive of Josep M. Cuyàs Tolosa, one of the collections that, with more than 13,000 photographs (only on paper) is one of the most interesting of which the Museum preserves. They are from a very old time and therefore bear witness to a very different time from the present.

Happy St. John’s Eve to everyone!
