Itinerary

During the festival, “ninots” (huge puppets or dolls made of cardboard, wood…) are created before being destroyed. The ninots look very lively and usually represent satirical scenes, especially to make fun of corrupt politicians and Spanish celebrities.
The Origin of the Fallas and Mascletà
The origin of the Fallas can be found in an ancient custom of the carpenters who, celebrating the arrival of spring, burned in front of their workshops the pieces of wood (parots) that they used to raise the lanterns that illuminated them during the winter.
Little by little, they added to this purifying fire old junk and rags, which humanized the parots until they became ninots. The humor of the Valencians soon gave these ninots the critical and ironic sense that they maintain today.
Did you know that some fallas have millionaire budgets?On the other hand, the Mascletà is a series of loud explosives (known as masclets) with a certain power that are fired continuously with the basic purpose of producing noise in a rhythmic way. The firing starts slowly and gradually increases in loudness, until it reaches what is known as “earthquake”, which is the final part, where lots of firecrackers explode at the same time causing a deafening noise. In short, it is nothing more than a sample of the passion that Valencians feel for gunpowder!
