What to do in Fallas: The Complete Guide
Las Fallas is a popular festival that is celebrated in the city of Valencia, Spain. It is an event full of joy, color and music that attracts tourists from all over the world.
If you are planning a trip to Valencia during the Fallas celebration, this article will provide you with a comprehensive guide to everything you need to do to enjoy this festivity to the fullest. From attending the mascletàs to visiting the impressive Fallas monuments and enjoying the delicious local gastronomy.
The celebration of Las Fallas dates back to the 18th century, when the carpenters of the city of Valencia burned the remains of wood that were of no use to them to celebrate the day of their patron saint, San José. Over time, this custom evolved into what we know today as Fallas.
Attend the Mascletàs:
One of the most popular activities during the Fallas are the mascletàs. These fireworks shows take place in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento in Valencia every day at 2:00 p.m. from March 1 to 19. Attending a mascletà is a unique experience that you cannot miss.
See the Fallas Monuments:
Another essential activity during the Fallas is to visit the Fallas monuments. Each Fallas commission builds its own monument, which represents a satirical critique of today's society.
These ephemeral works of art are burned on the night of March 19, in the so-called "cremà". Visiting the Fallas monuments is a fun way to get to know the local culture and enjoy the creativity of the Fallas artists.
Participate in the Offering of Flowers:
The Offering of Flowers is another important event during the Fallas. This parade takes place on March 17 and 18 and consists of the falleras and falleros bringing bouquets of flowers to the Virgen de los Desamparados.
Participating in the Offering of Flowers is a way of getting to know Valencian traditions up close and enjoying the beauty of flowers.
