Practiced in the north of Catalonia high in the Pyrenees Mountains, it’s seen primarily in the counties of Pallars Jussà and Pallars Sobirà. In the town of Pobla de Segur, it takes place on June 17, just in time for another festival of fire: Sant Joan. The fiery event of the Falles in Catalonia, in turn, dates back hundreds of years. Because of its ancient roots, perhaps, one part was exclusively for men – that is, until now.
