FALLAS VOCABULARY

If you want to understand the real sense of Fallas, you should know what these terms mean:

  • La Mascletà – Incredibly noisy fireworks let off during the daytime to make as much noise as possible. The Mascletà held each day at 14:00 in the town hall square is impossible to describe in words – you have to experience it for yourself!
  • El Ninot – A small part of a Fallas sculpture – typically a human figure of breathtaking detail and craftsmanship.
  • La plantà – The installation or ‘planting’ of the Fallas sculptures around the city.
  • La cremà – The last evening of the festival when the monuments are set on fire.
  • La Verbena – street parties, paella cook offs and live music arranged by Falleros from the community of Falleros; normally you need to be invited but there are so many around the streets of Valencia that people wouldn’t notice if you joined in.
  • La Nit de Foc – a spectacular fireworks display on the Paseo de la Alameda
