Finishing Touches For Fallas

The finishing touches are being made to massive colourful sculptures on display in Valencia for the Las Fallas festival. 

You'll find the monumentos falleros being erected all around the city and will be wowed as you turn many of the street corners and find huge caricatures looming above you.

And as tradition has it every year, the gigantic monument artworks will be burned to dust, in spectacular bonfires on the night of 19 March for the finale of Fallas: La Cremà – or "the Burning".

These figures only appear once a year and lasts just about a week. So, if you’re lucky enough to be in Valencia between now and 19 March be sure to walk around and see them, before they're burned to a crisp.

Watch out also for another essential element of the celebrations, the mascletà, when thundering crashes echo around the old buildings and the smell of smoke and explosives rises above the crowd’s heads, as enormous firecrackers strung up across streets and squares are detonated in a spectacular rhythmic pattern.

If you'd like to enjoy one of the best mascletaes at City Hall Square we still have a few spaces left on our VIP Mascletà Balcony packages.
