Each year, the Las Fallas festival in Valencia takes place on the same dates.

The main events run from March 15 to March 19, but numerous events take place in the fortnight leading up to this week.

There are fireworks every lunchtime from the first of the month, as well as parades, shows and other festivities.

Las Fallas Accommodation

Accommodation during Las Fallas can be expensive and will fill up early. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Valencia during Las Fallas is noisy 24 hours a day. If you value your sleep, you'll need to choose your accommodation carefully. Which means either staying a little out of the center of town, or knowing in advance that your hotel has quiet rooms (not facing the street). During my trip to Las Fallas, I stayed at the Astoria Palace.

How to Get to Las Fallas

If traveling from other cities in Spain, find out how to get to Valencia:


  • Madrid to Valencia
  • Madrid and Valencia are connected by the AVE high-speed train, meaning the journey takes just over an hour and a half.
  • Barcelona to Valencia
    The high speed train hasn't reached this route yet, so journeys still take around three hours. The bus is a good option here.
  • Malaga to Valencia
    It's not so easy to get from Malaga to Valencia - the best option is to take the high-speed train, changing at Cordoba.
