What is the Fallas in Spain?

València's Fallas: Intangible Human Heritage

The Falles (Valencian: Falles; Spanish: Fallas) is an annual tradition in Valencia, Spain, commemorating Saint Joseph. The five main days of celebration take place between 15 and 19 March, while the Mascletà, a pyrotechnic spectacular with firecracker detonations and fireworks displays, takes place daily from 1 to 19 March. On 30 November 2016, UNESCO inscribed the Falles festival on its list of the intangible cultural heritage of mankind.


The tradition of las Fallas stems from the old carpenter's tradition of burning pieces of wood (parots) used to prop up their lights during the winter when celebrating the entrance of spring on March 19th. They gradually added old clothes and rags to this blaze, giving it a human-like appearance, until they became the "ninots" we know today. 


Fallas have evolved into temporary works of art that cost millions of euros.


Ninots

That's what the "Puppet"-like Figures are called.

Contemporary art

The ninots are incredibly lifelike, depicting raunchy, humorous scenarios and contemporary events.

La Crema

All the Fallas are burned, big and small in an event called “La Cremà,” or “The Burning”

Traditional (and not so traditional) music, tons of explosives, emotional religious actions, paellas in the street... Fallas has it all!
