Las Fallas Festival
Each year Valencia celebrates the end of winter with a week-long celebration known as the Las fallas Festival, including fireworks, artwork, bonfires, and parties. This unique festival is most popular for the giant yet beautiful papier mâché figures, some mocking celebrities, sports idols, political figures, or characters from movies, while others are simply from the creators’ imaginations. Each neighborhood creates their own falla, and you can find more than 350 throughout the city; admire them while you can, they are destined to be ceremoniously burned. Don’t miss our trips to Valencia to witness the Mascletá!
Never knew what this Mascletá thing was about?? Well, you better do your homework before getting there! A Mascletá is how the locals call an orchestrated pyrotechnic display. Is a bit like a daylight fireworks, a firecracker bonanza that congregates locals and visitors to their eardrums delight.
