Guided tours: the Fallas, much more than an experience

Categories: fallas.

Guided tours in the mornings or afternoons to know in depth the Fallas traditions, and access the interior of the best monuments

Probably, the most surprising thing about the Fallas of València is their atmosphere. The contagious joy of the falleros, the non-stop coming and going of the music bands, the thousands of Valencian costumes passing before your eyes with silks of a thousand colours, the roar of the firecrackers, the smell of powder, paella or chocolate with fritters… a festival for the senses. 

But the Fallas of València are much more than this and you should not miss it. If you want to know the origin of the Fallas while you visit some of the most spectacular monuments, their traditions, the evolution of the festivity throughout history and its particularities, sign up for a guided tour (bilingual, in Spanish and English).

Two and a half hours guided by an expert who will lead you through the most significant places of the festivity in the city so that you don’t miss anything.


Hours, content and meeting points:

Fallas morning guided tour: 

On 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th March there is a tour at 10:00 a.m. and another tour at 10:30 p.m., so that you are on time to see the mascletà after the tour.

The tour will leave at these times from the Tourist Information Office in the Town Hall Square, except on 17th March, when the meeting point will be the entrance staircase of the Torres de Serranos. 

During the tour, in addition to an introduction to all the peculiarities that surround the Fallas such as the clothing, the monuments and their Ninots, the pyrotechnic tradition and its events, how the prizes are awarded, you will also access the inside of the Na Jordana, El Pilar and Convento Jerusalén special Fallas section.

 Fallas afternoon guided tour: 

On 16th, 17th and 18th March there is a tour at 3:30 p.m. and another tour at 4:00 p.m.  

The tour will leave at these times from the Mercado de Colón, at the entrance of calle Jorge Juan.

The content is the same as in the morning tour, so that you know in depth the Fallas, their traditions and peculiarities, but the route varies, with visits and entrances to different Fallas monuments: Almirante Cadarso- Duque de Calabria-Regne de València and Sueca Literato Azorín.

Fallas evening guided tour:

On 19th March there is only a tour at 7:45 horas p.m. to see the cremà of a falla infantil. 

The tour will leave at that time from the Mercado de Colón, at the entrance to calle Jorge Juan.

This evening tour also includes an explanation of the origin and evolution of the Fallas, the clothing and traditions, seeing the cremà of Falla Infantil Mercado Colón and a visit to the the bright lights of the Ruzafa neighbourhood. The tour ends at the Falla Regne de València so that you are on time to see the cremà and its fireworks on your own.
