¿What is the Valencia’s Fallas?
Valencian people say goodby to the winter with the “Fallas” feast celebration. The fiesta has an international interest and attracks lots of spanish visitors and tourists from all over the world.
It´s held in March, from 15 to 19, Saint Joseph´s day, patron saint of the town, and not olnly in the city but in many places in the Comunidad Valenciana.
Las fallas are artistic monuments with a satiric look, that are “planted” in the streets, tradicional squares and public areas in the cities. They are made of papier-mache although they tend to be made of polimeric material now.
Each monument has its “motto” that is being developed with an ironic and sometimes sarcastic critical point of view on our society and its flaws.thus they will be simbolically burnt in the real fire that will burn all the monuments in the fiesta´s highest point :The last night.
Fireworks and music are the heart of this fiesta, fireworks in the night and “mascletás” for the day; falleras y falleros passing by in colourful garments going with the many and prestigiated valencian tradicional music bands
The origin of this celebration is dated on the times of the artisan guilds. The carpenters guild, spring coming, used to take out from their workshops all the waste left to have it burnt in the street in their patron Saint´s day, Saint Joseph.Others gilds were joining them and then neighbours who got rid of their unuseful things so, putting them in the street in a pyre way, and let them burn. Afterwards they made dolls and toys (ninots) placing them in groups, moulding short stories about things they didn´t like.
Las Fallas have been the reason for the creation of the “Ciudad Fallera”, The fallas town : Huge workshops where the artists work all year round in a typical creative proccess, from the sketch to the scale model and then , the monument. And the reason too of ”El Museo fallero” ( fallas museum) where stands all the ninots that weren´t burnt in others years because of its artistic value and saved by the votes from the visitors.
Fallas should be seen and enjoyed once in a lifetime,at least. It´s an unique show in the world. Town is transformed totally with many events worthwhiling to see, in a city where the street is vividly lived.
