Once a year Valencia celebrates Saint Joseph with Las Fallas and turns completely crazy. People take to the streets to parade along huge funny figures and go wild, partying all day. The figurines have been a cult art event, with artists coming in from all over the world to create beautiful works of art.
If you’re not in Valencia during the Las Fallas, then you can get a bit of the vibe in the Museo Fallero de Valencia, displaying a very large collection of the event’s figurines, covering the 80 years this event has been taking place. There are some funky things in there, some even kinky, and it’s interesting to see how the art evolved throughout the years.
Examples? I’ve got plenty…
A cute little specialty museum for a quick one hour visit on the way to see the nearby spectacular City of Arts and Sciences.
