Welcome to Valencia during Fallas, where the streets come alive with elaborate sculptures, and the rhythmic sounds of "mascletà" explosions. The much-anticipated Fallas festival is back in 2024, promising a week-long extravaganza filled with festivities, parades, and breathtaking pyrotechnics.
And if you are not a Fallas fan, don't worry. There is a team Fallas and a Team escaping fallas. If you want to escape this festival, read this blogpost about lovely villages as a hideaway option outside the city!

In short: What is Las Fallas?
Las Fallas is a traditional festival celebrated annually in the city of Valencia, Spain, and its surrounding towns and villages. 
Towering satirical sculptures called "fallas" dominate the streets, culminating in a grand finale on March 19th with the burning of fallas. Beyond art, the festival fosters community unity, showcasing Valencians' cultural identity.
The festival is deeply rooted in Valencia's culture and history, dating back to centuries-old traditions.
