5 Reasons to Go to the Fallas de Valencia at Least Once in a Lifetime

Fallas de Valencia, or Las Fallas, which literally translates to “the fires” in Valencian, is an annual celebration starting on March 15 and culminating on March 19 in Valencia, Spain, centered around the burning of hundreds of symbolic ninots. These puppets frequently depict satirical or political statements representing the people’s liberation from — or frustration with — events of years past. Numerous events of music and local culture can be found during the days of the festival, including daily rhythmic, musical percussion of fireworks, parades, bullfights, Paella contests and beauty pageants. Not far from many hotels near Fallas de Valencia, one of our top picks for the best experience of the Las Fallas fireworks is within the old riverbed of Valencia, where crowds gather every night of the celebration for one of the most impressive fireworks displays that grows larger each day leading up to the event's end.
