Fallas de Valencia 2017Fallas de Valencia 2017, a festival that runs from 15 to 19 March 2017.
But throughout the year many events and celebrations that occur are related to the Fallas of Valencia.
The fallas are also known as “Fiestas Josefinas (feast of Saint Joseph)” which will take place in honor of St. Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters.
Fireworks called “mascletás” are the favorites of the Valencians. They take place between 1 and 19 March 2017 at 14:00 hours at the Town Hall Square of Valencia.
Unlike fireworks in search of visual stimulation, the “mascletás” aim to stimulate the body through rhythmic pirotecnic explosions called “masclets“. Some consider these noises as “music”.
