We continue with the Falles! One of the events that creates great expectation among fallers this week is the Offering. On March 17th and 18th, fallers from all Falles commissions join a parade dressed with the regional outfits to the Plaza de la Virgen to offer flowers to Valencia’s patron saint, the Lady of the Abandoned Ones.
All the bouquets form a cloak that covers the Virgin, a 14m figure. The Fallera mayor is the last one to walk across the street in front of Valencia‘s patron saint. After this event on March 18th, there’s a fireworks castle and the Nit del Foc (Night of Fire) officially starts.
For those who aren’t from Valencia or have never been here during the Falles celebrations, we leave some photographs:
