After a year without Fallas, the city is going to celebrates its most important celebration again. Today we talk about Las Fallas de Valencia 2021. Our Spanish school El Rincón del Tandem tells you how the great Valencian festival is going to take place 😊
Surely you’ve heard the name of our city’s most famous celebration… Normally, the Fallas are held in March as a welcome of spring, but, due to the crisis of the Covid19, this 2021, will be celebrated in September.
In fact, the sculptures that have been stored since March 2020, will finally be installed in th streets and squares so that the whole city will be able to appreciate their beauty.
Therefore, let’s take a look at the official program of these Fallas 2021 (1-5 September) so that our students of the Spanish course can enjoy the “Valencia fallera” with its lights, flowers, music and food.
