What started as a feast day for St. Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters, has evolved into a 5-day, multifaceted celebration involving fire. Valencia, a quiet city with a population of just over 1 million, swells to an estimated three million flame-loving revelers during Las Fallas celebrations. Las Fallas literally means “the fires” in Valencian. The focus of the fiesta is the creation of 380 Fallas – which are huge cardboard, wood, paper-machè and plaster statues. The structures are extremely lifelike and usually depict satirical scenes and current events. On the last day of the festival all of the “fallas” are set on fire except for one, which is voted to be saved by the people, and is put into a museum.
