Flower Offering Ofrenda Fallas
Categories: fallas, parties and traditions.
TOURISTIC AREA: Historical center
Without a doubt, the offering is the most emotional act for falleros and the most exciting for Valencians. All the commissions or fallas make an offering of flowers to the Virgen de los Desamparados, patron saint of the city. In the Plaza de la Virgen there is an immense reproduction of the patron saint, the "Geperudeta", which is adorned with a colourful mantle with the flowers that the falleros offer her. The result is wonderful!
The parades, which are celebrated on the afternoons of the 17th and 18th of March, in its final stretch runs along La Paz and San Vicente Streets, with falleras and falleros of all ages dressed in typical costumes and music bands accompanying the commissions. A truly spectacular act.
Visiting the square after the 2 days of ofrenda is an olfactory experience which is worth it, we recommend it!
