Las Fallas fiesta of Valencia is an astonishing farewell to winter. Only those who have actually seen it can believe it. Hundreds of whimsical sculptures are paraded through the streets. Finally they are burnt to cinders in a giant celebratory bonfire on the 19th of March - the festival of San José, the patron saint of carpenters.
And this being Valencia, the food is fantastic. Giant paellas feed hundreds of revelers and paella cooking competitions fill the streets! Of course the wine flows freely and revelers stay up through the night. All through the city you can enjoy frosty horchata de chufa shakes with fresh farton pastries or hot taza chocolate with churros.
