This past weekend was a long weekend here in Spain, so I went with a couple of friends from my masters to Valencia to the famous traditional yearly celebration called "Fallas". This name refers to both the monuments created and to the actual celebration. Famous artist spend the entire year working hard and building these beautiful monuments to then burn them on the last night called "La Cremá".
Another beuatiful sight is seeing "Las Falleras" in their traditional gowns walking around Valencia. Some walk in a religious processions and offer flowers to a empty construction of the "Virgen de los Desamparados" which are then placed in the empty slots to create a cloak with a beautiful design.
