Favorite thing: This is probably the only art in the world tht is constructed with the objective of being desctructed. Millions of Euros are spent on this milenary festival which consists of papier mache and wooden efigies risen as critisism to happenings that could be from the field of specially politics, sports or glamour. You will find hundreds of figures at practically every crossroad of the city from between the 15th of March, till the 19th when they are consumed by the flames.
The popularity of this festival has been attracting more and more tourists from all corners of the globe making it difficult to find a hotel room in the city and also to distances of upto 100 kilometers. So if you are planning to visit Valencia for the fallas, please see that your reservations for staying and travelling are done well in advance.

Fondest memory: You will have to do a lot of walking come with comfortable shoes
