LAS FALLAS - Festival of Fire in Valencia

The most famous and internationally recognised of the celebrations in Valencia take place between 15th and 19th March, LAS FALLAS - Festival of Fire.


This festival is a large pantomime of staged life, in which current local, national and international issues are satirised. Nearly 700 fallas statues made
out of polystirene, papier mache and wood, are erected in the city streets, where the aroma of chocolate, gunpowder, and buñelos lingers during the days of the celebration. Music bands parade the streets with the local “falleras” (carnival queens)
livening up the atmosphere in the bustling streets.

The Mascletá is a firework display held everyday throughout March at 2pm in the Town hall square, but you will have never seen fireworks like these or should I say "heard"...for the Mascletá, sound and rhythm are the main spectacular, the louder the better for the screaming crowds! They even recommend you open your mouth a little so as not to busrt your ear drums, you can feel the ground shaking, sending vibrations through your whole body. A spectacular not to be missed in Valencia in March!

On the last night of the Las Fallas celebration, 19th March, all the 700 statues are burned to a cinder with yet more fireworks and partying. Firemen aiming their hoses at the buildings to keep the temperatures and these emense structures under control.
