Fallas tours 2018

The city of Valencia is on fire!

Every year Valencia’s grandest annual festival, Las Fallas, is celebrated from 15 till 19 March in a continuous round-the-clock party. This is the second year the Fallas festival is recognized as cultural heritage by UNESCO! And we are offering our fallas tours again! 

A Falla is a big sculpted monument with a message, normally to criticize everything and anyone imaginable. These huge monuments made of materials like paper mache, wood and carbon board reach extravagant heights and all are great displays of art. You have four days to see about 700 fallas that are mounted throughout the city. On the final night of Las Fallas, around midnight on March 19, these fallas are burnt as huge bonfires. This is known as the cremà (the burning), the climax of the whole event, and the reason why the constructions are called fallas (torches).

Before the official start of the Fallas, there are already lots of things going on. Every day starting on the 1st of March at 14.00 we have a firecracker show called a mascletá. Streets are busy, restaurants do not always take reservations, there are street markets and food, some streets are blocked for traffic and many more things…

3 fallas tours to combine, experience the authentic fallas with a local! 

As a visitor of the fallas festival you might find it hard to understand the message of the fallas and you might not know where to find the best fallas. This is why we would like to take you on our Fallas tours, to give you a real authentic fallas experience.

We have a morning and evening tour they can be combined as well as we will visit different areas of the city and different fallas monuments. This tour is not a private tour, but done in small groups, if you prefer a private tour please let me know.

Some days before the 15th we can not do our normal tapas tour because our tapas restaurants do not take reservations. We have made a special tour for this occasion, our food and fallas tour.
