What are the Fallas?
Las Fallas originated in the Middle Ages, Valencian craftsmen had in the winter months enlighten times their work this were parots' that used wooden boards to which they hung their lanterns. In spring this parots were no longer needed and were burned this, the lantern came to be on top of the stake. Therefore, in San Jose (March 19), the patron saint of carpenters, burned Fallas images.
Now are created images and it is intended that this be as creative as possible, who will be looking to make the biggest fires. During Las Fallas there are about 700 images over, it is an impressive sight as these images go through the streets. On some images work throughout the year there are also those up to 20 meters high.
In the last night, the homemade images also burnt all this they call La Cremà. The burning of the images takes several hours, and is a wonderful sight. The tradition is that one image is saved by the public, this is then transferred to the Fallero Museum.
