  • 1

    The most important festival in the autonomous region of Valencia. The Fallas take place every year between March 12 and 19. The highlight is the burning of the fallas on the night of March 19. Fallas are groups of huge painted cardboard and wood figures which depict current events and famous people. Each neighborhood makes its own falla. They are erected on one night, known as the plantá, and displayed the next day. A panel of judges "pardons" the best one and it is placed in the falla museum.
