The call of the Fallas


25th of February

The reading of a public proclamation marks the beginning of the Fallas, courtesy of the Fallas Queen and municipal leaders, accompanied (naturally) by a fireworks display.

This year’s Crida will take place on the 25th of February at 19:00, to announce the beginning of the city’s main festivals.

Although entry is free, it is recommended to arrive early, due to the large number of people who assemble in front of the Serranos Towers.
