Fiery extravaganza (14 photos)

Fallas festival (Fallas) - a traditional fiery extravaganza that takes place every year in Valencia in mid-March in honor of St. Joseph. The culmination of the festival falls on March 19, the day of St. Joseph, but long before that period begins in joyful commotion. More than a week before the start of the holiday on the areas of Valencia appear gigantic artistic compositions of wood, papier-mâché and foam to create the locals worked for a year. At the end of the festival, these figures are burned.
