San Juan

Between June 23 and 24, the mustaches of San Juan (de júas) are burned, dolls created by various local associations that ridicule well-known local and national characters, destined to be burned at the stake. On the night of the 23rd, the contest is held and only the winner is saved from being burned, only until the following night. The people of Estepona gather on the beach at midnight to get their feet wet and touch the water, which tradition says brings good luck all year long.
