Las Fallas

The Fallas festival in February/March 2022 is expected to go ahead. There may be restrictions on who and how many people can gather in the streets for the events and for our balcony experiences it may be necessary to show a valid proof of COVID vaccination or negative test result and wear face masks (when not eating/drinking), according to the local regulations at the time.

Fallas in Valencia

In March every year the city of Valencia is taken over with Las Fallas. Parties begin and massive colourful “monuments” appear in the streets, only to be burnt to the ground a few days later in an emotional night of fireworks and flames.

The main events and best time to see the monuments is 15-19 March, but you can also enjoy mascletà firecracker shows and other activities around the city starting from 1 March.

TIP! Enjoy a VIP view of some of the best Fallas events with our Banging Fallas Balcony Experience!

The city streets are dressed with decorative lights, the smell of gunpowder fills the air, people dance to traditional Valencian music, and thousands of flowers fill the Plaza del la Virgen in the city centre.

Fallas Valencia

The city is only transformed once a year and for just a few days, so if you’re lucky enough to be in Valencia for Las Fallas make the most of this unique experience and enjoy the culture, tradition and parties!

Gunpowder is fundamental to Fallas parties. Valencians love the smell of gunpowder in all its forms: firework displays, mascletà (massive firecracker concerts) and smaller bangers being thrown around in streets.
