Fallas Benidorm 2018

The Most Typical Valencian Fiesta

In Benidorm we are in Fiesta; the light, color and fire ... above all the fire,will  floods the streets  of our town for a few days. From this hospitable town we invite you to fully live and experience the Fallas, undoubtedly our most internationally known festival.

For five days the castles, monuments and “mascletaes” become the protagonists of Benidorm, where the smell of gunpowder is interspersed with the smell of flowers and the music of the bands with the sound of masclets.

A transformation that occurs as a prelude to spring, and on March 19, everything ends and everything begins; with the last of the ashes people start to dream of Fallas again for  the following year.

This excellent Valencian fiesta  takes place in Benidorm from the 15th to March 19th, the festivity of San José.

There are three Fallas Commissions: falla “centro”, falla “rincón” and falla “els tolls”, which are responsible for creating their Fallas constructions in their respective districts and organise the fiesta. Parades, and flower offering are the most significant events, culminating in the feast day (the 19th) with the "cremá" (burning of the fallas).

The six children’s and adults versions of monuments are burned at different times for people who want to  view all the burnings.
