Mascletà of the Fallas festival in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento

Categories: fallas.

TOURISTIC AREA: Historical center

From March 1 to 19, vibrate every day at two in the afternoon with explosions of gunpowder and colors

The truth is that the word 'vibrate' falls short, no, extremely short. What happens in the Town Hall Square of Valencia every day between March 1st and 19th at 2:00 p.m. is a sensory and social phenomenon that has fans all over the world.

At that time, thousands of people beat with the same rhythm, that of the countless explosions that the best pyrotechnic companies carefully prepare for the occasion.

Firing a 'mascletà' (fireworks spectacle) is a technical challenge because everything must be very well measured. And not only for safety, which is taken for granted, but because it must contain the appropriate amount of firecrackers, colors, and bursts that saturate the atmosphere with a thunderous sound and a scent of gunpowder that is hard to forget.

Not to mention the speed of the shots: from soft to their maximum level in a balanced crescendo.
Such a show ends with great applause and a lively atmosphere on the surrounding terraces where tourists and the luckiest locals coexist.

The best way to watch a 'mascletà'?
A very good option is from a balcony in the Town Hall Square, to be able to feel it, see it, and hear it from above. Reserve your spot!

Bounded space in the mascletà for people with reduced mobility. If you have reduced mobility, you can watch the mascletà with a companion in the reserved area. You just need to notify your attendance 48 hours in advance by sending an email with your full name and that of your companion to: Access will be through Calle de la Sangre, Avenida del Oeste, Calle San Vicente.
