Every June 22 at 22 p.m., the network of Towers and Castles of the Kingdom of Majorca lights up around Canigó in Haut Vallespir, Roussillon Conflent and Conflent Canigó under the name TORREFOCS (Tower of fire).

Each year, the network of signal towers lights up. It was also one of the only events that lasted during the Covid19 pandemic because there was no need to gather at one point.

The signal towers light up to accompany the Canigó flame at the summit. The flame comes back down from Canigó to light the Midsummer fires in the villages. It is a message of hope, peace and fraternity transmitted by this signal and relayed from village to village.
