Valencia & Fallas Festival 🔥🔥

Just a quick note today it’s my 2 month anniversary in Spain🎉 !! I can’t believe how fast how  time flies.

This past weekend although I didn’t travel to another country I decided to take it easy and stay local and traveled to Valencia. We went in a great timing since they had started their Fallas IMG_4739Festival. It is an interesting festival.

From March 15 to 19, Valencia is given over to a carnival of bonfires, fiesta, fireworks and satire known as Las Fallas(fires)

On  every corner through out the city are colourful ninots, giant papier-mâché figures. Each one in some way satirises a political figure, or a soap star, or characters of movies, or sports idols. The thing I don’t understand is why they are all burned at the end. They are too beautiful to be burned 😦

The Fallas FestivalLa Mascleta: 
Every day at 2pm firecrackers rip through the Plaza del Ayuntamiento in an noisy event called la Mascleta. The best way to explain this was like  firecrackers in some kind of rhythm then it ends as hundreds of masclets exploding at once.

Paella!!! 

I’ve been told that the best Paellas are in Valencia, therefore I have not had a paella till noIMG_4772w and I have to say it is delicious!

Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias

It is the most important modern tourist destination in the city of Valencia.
