Las Fallas is undoubtedly one of the most unique and crazy festivals in Spain. What started as a feast day for St. Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters, has evolved into a 5-day, multifaceted celebration of fire. Las Fallas literally means "the fires" in Valencian. The focus of the fiesta is the creation and destruction of ninots--huge cardboard, wood and plaster statues--that are placed at over 350 key intersections and parks around the city. The ninots are extremely lifelike and usually depict bawdy, satirical scenes and current events. They are crafted by neighborhood organizations and take about six months to construct.

 Another highlight is the daily mascletá which occurs in the Plaza Anyuntamiento at exactly 2pm,when huge piles of firecrackers are ignited, the ground literally shakes for the next ten minutes.
