Fallas sfpl Valencian celebration of the feast of St Joseph Valencian celebration of the feast of St Joseph
In the week of 19 March (the feast of San José), Valencia honours its patron saint with a spectacular fiesta called las Fallas. Fallas is the name given to the huge papier-mâché, cardboard and wooden sculptures depicting politicians and other well-known public figures which, amidst a deafening display of fireworks, are put on bonfires and set alight by members of competing groups, or falleros, who will have spent the previous year creating and building them. Only the sculpture which is voted best escapes the flames.
