Las Fallas is a 19-day celebration in commemoration of Saint Joseph which sees more than a million visitors come to Valencia every year.
Huge papier-mâché statues and floats, often satirical in nature, are built for the festival. There is a massive amount of work done all year to build these, and then on the final day of the festival the statues are loaded with fireworks and set ablaze.
This is a great time of the year to be in Valencia and experience one of the greatest celebrations of the country, party along with locals and eat traditional food of this UNESCO listed festival.
The floats are extremely detailed and beautiful pieces of art, and in fact, there is a yearly competition to see which one is the best.
One of the popular areas of Valencia’s Fallas festival is the trendy neighbourhood of Ruzafa where most people go out partying, eating and visiting.
On our evening Ruzafa tapas and wine tour you can get to know great stories about Fallas and get to taste some of the traditional foods of this fun festival as well as taste traditional Spanish aperitifs and creative tapas. I would love to show you my Valencia where you can have a real local experience and learn all about tapas and traditions in Spain.
Why is Valencia worth visiting? Come and see it with us!
