Keep Up With The Fallas – 2020 Schedule

The Fallas are officially here!
The Cridà marked the start of the festival yesterday night at the Torres de Serranos. Here we provide you with a break down of the schedule over the coming weeks, so you can have a better idea of what’s going on and some of the events you’d like to attend.
Here we do our best to explain some of the traditional events, although it’s not always easy to translate some of the typical Valencian names! So the best way to find out more about these activities, is to go and find out for yourself!
