I thought when I was in Zamora, that I had seen some of the best fireworks ever, but watching this video, taken in Santiago on the 25th of July, the feast of Santiago, I thought, "I wish I had been there"! I love fireworks.

Fireworks, waterworks and laserworks. See the arrow and shell?
Fun

Rosina mentioned in one of her reports from Santiago that 2008 might be the last of the firework displays on the cathedral:

...it appears that this year, 2008, will be the last one with such extravagantly lavish display of fireworks, rockets, flares, lasers, colored shooting-up electrical fountains, real flames and such, that go on for an incredible sixty minutes..... From eleven o'clock p.m. on the 24th of July to midnight. It appears that concerned archaeological and cultural-historical heads have managed to prevail over public oooohs and aaaaahs to convince the powers that be of the inevitability of consequential damage to the structural essence of the Santiago Cathedral and its treasures.
