Las Fallas is a celebration that takes place from the 1st of March to the 19th in Valencia, Spain.
The roots of Las Fallas goes back to an old carpenter’s tradition. Whilst celebrating the coming of spring, the carpenter would burn logs of wood which he used to prop lights during the winter. When they started adding other objects like old rags and relics, the wood came to resemble a human. Thus, the ninos that are used today at the festival were born.
The Fallas festivities today have turned into works of art with a sense of humour, a combination of satire and traditions. During the celebrations, there are many things to do in the city, as music, art and the smell of street food fill the streets.
