Valencia Fallas are celebrated every year in March.
The main holidays are between March 15th and 19th. But already in late February you can enjoy some of the festival's features, such as the 'ninots' exhibition. These little 'figures' surround the huge Fallas monument. There is constant noise all around town as Valencianos shoot fireworks, and there are special pastries... and all this because of Saint Joseph?! What does he have to do with it?!
That's one of the many questions I will answer on my 4-hours guided tour through the streets of Old Town Valencia. We will combine a short visit to the historical centre (Cathedral, Serrano gate, Central Market) with a route via some Fallas & detailed explanation about the festival:
- Where do these celebrations take their origin?
- What are Valencianos doing during Fallas?
- Why are there so many fireworks and fire crackers?
- How expensive are the traditional Falleras dresses?
- Where can you eat the best chocolate&buñuelos?
...and of course: why are the Fallas being burnt ??..plus so much more!
There is also the possibility to
- arrange VIP viewing of Mascleta fireworks (2 pm!) from a balcony - Impressive and without the ever-pushing crowds!
- book a "Fallas at night" Tour and admire thousands of streetlights in Ruzafa.
