Once a year, Valencia in Spain turns into a great happening. Hundreds of giant dolls, rising up to 10 meters, of Politics, Movie stars and Toreadors carried in a parade along a bonfires and pyrotechnic performances way.
In spite of the long period that took to create those dolls the climax of the festival is throwing the dolls into the fires. Explosions and the flames are all around. Pregnant women are not allowed to participate in the festival.
Las Fallas festival attracts mass of crowd, locals and tourist. Therefore, due to the numerous visitors during the festival days and the high demand for accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms well in advance. Festival guests will return home with wonderful cultural experiences.
The festival’s program, shows time / schedule of events etc. is present in the festival’s link website. See details below, under “Event Related Information” section.
