Benidorm Fallas Has Been Postponed

Benidorm Council has postponed the traditional Fallas celebrations following the recommendations of the Ministry of Health for mass events, and the actions taken by the Generalitat (Regional Government). They now recommend not holding outdoor events of more than 1.000 people. The Fallas (or Falles in Valenciano) is a traditional celebration held in commemoration of Saint Joseph (San José) in the Valencian Region. The term Falles refers to both the celebration and the monuments built by community groups that are burnt during the celebration. Any postponed events will be held as soon as the health situation permits. We'll keep you posted.

The Fallas is a traditional celebration held in commemoration of San José (Saint Joseph) in the Valencian Community. The word Fallas (or Falles in Valenciano) can refer either to the celebrations themselves or to the giant, colourful papier-mâché effigies which are eventually burnt on the final night of the celebrations.
