Eating buñuelos and churros  

After a day full of excitement and activities, there’s nothing better than indulging in the traditional flavours of the Fallas. Buñuelos, small fried delicacies covered in icing sugar, and churros, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, are the perfect accompaniment to a cup of hot chocolate. Whether you enjoy them at a street stall or in a cosy café, these sweet treats will leave you wanting more.  


Discover the ninots   

Walking through the streets of Valencia during the Fallas is like stepping into an open-air museum, where every corner reveals a new surprise. The ninots, giant, colourful figures representing everyday characters or famous figures, are the heart and soul of this festival. From the most traditional to the most extravagant, each ninot tells a story and reflects the ingenuity and creativity of the Fallas artists.  


Participate in the Nit de la Cremà (Cremà Night)   

The high point of the Fallas comes on the night of 19 March with the Nit de la Cremà. In this exciting event, all the fallas that have filled the streets of the city during the week are burnt in a spectacular farewell. The fire consumes the wooden and cardboard structures, leaving only ashes and memories. It is a moment of celebration and farewell, which marks the end of the Fallas but leaves in the hearts of all those present the festive spirit and the joy of having lived a unique experience.  


As you can see, the Fallas in Valencia offer you a unique experience that combines tradition, culture and fun. Don’t wait any longer, at least once in your life you have to go to Valencia and immerse yourself in the magic of the Fallas, we assure you it will be an unforgettable trip!
