Valencia kicks off spring with Fallas celebrations

Valencia has already been in the mood for the Fallas party since March 1st. Every afternoon up to 2pm "mascletà" is celebrated in the Town Hall Square, where it fills the city with sounds and gunpowder smell.

The big week of festivities takes place during the 15th and 19th of March. All the streets and squares of the city and much of the region of Valencia are filled with music, light and colour.

More than 700 Fallas monuments will be the main focal points in every corner of Valencia. On March 15th, it will be a long night for Fallas artists, where after a full year of work, they will create "ninots" to be mounted in the traditional "plantà". The morning of the 16th, Valencia's residents will be woken up by caricatures and witness the satirical representations of the most relevant events of today.

There are several Fallas participants that compete for various awards, highlighting the special Fallas events which are the largest and most spectacular, reaching 20 metres in height. These awards take place during the 16th and 17th days, where children and adults can all take part in Fallas celebrations.

One of the most exciting moments of these festivals is the floral offering to the Virgen de los Desamparados. On 17th and 18th March, all the regional Fallas costume parades can be seen throughout the streets in Plaza de la Virgen, where a floral structure of about 14 metre in height is formed in honour of the patron saint of the city. 

On 19th March everything ends with a spectacular firework show, an act known as "crema". Concerts, bullfights and lighting contests complete this international festival programme.
