Valencia, Spain : Fallas

The Falles is a traditional celebration held in commemoration of St. Joseph in Valencia, Spain. Our tour included a visit to the Fallas Museum. Although every year all the falla are burned but one is spared and kept in the Museum. Fallas to be preserved are chosen by popular vote and it is said it reflects the psyche of the Valencian as mostly fallas are bawdy and satirical in nature.

Some of the preserved fallas and posters in the museum. It was hard to choose what to capture and then to post here with all the funny and beautifully made fallas on display.
