The Nit del Foc is normally held at night between the 18th and the 19th of March. The fireworks are set off from the 9th tramo (section) of the TuriaPark.
|Nit del Foc|
|Nit del Foc||01:30 am, 19th March||Between Puente de la Exposición and Puente de las Flores||20 min.|
Of course, access to the 9th tramo of the park (and the adjacent bridges) is forbidden at the time of the event for safety reasons.
To be specific, the closed off bridges for the occasion are: Puente de la Exposición, Puente de las Flores, Puente del Mar.
In terms of streets, the whole Passeig de Ciutadella and the stretch of the Alameda between Puente de la Exposición and Puente del Mar are off-limits. Additionally, Puente del Real and Puente de Aragón are also closed off for vehicles.
In any case, we recommend you get there on foot or by public transport.
Best spots to watch the firework display
The fireworks are therefore best enjoyed from the nearby bridges or the sides of the park. This means Puente del Real and the Puente de Aragón offer an excellent view - there will be no cars allowed on them so you can safely occupy the bridges.
You can also go to either end of Puente de Aragón (with Plaza de América and Plaza Zaragoza). Other viable options are the area surrounding the kiosk La Pérgola on the Alameda or even Calle de l’Arquitecte Mora and its surroundings.
When choosing a spot to watch the Nit de Foc, always make sure that your view is not impeded by trees or urban architecture.
Try to go early, as many people are already starting to find a spot at least half an hour before the start of the display.
The special safety measures that are put in place during the Nit de Foc also affect public transport.
This means that the Alameda metro stop is closed two hours before the display, around 11:30 pm. A lot of EMT bus lines are also diverted, so the best is to ask the driver what the closest stop is.
