Fallas

Fallas
The great week of the Fallas brings to Oliva a great entertainment spectacle of music, colour and fire, that is kept going in the streets of the town throughout the festivities. The fallas, have been celebrated since the 60s and are spread throughout the different neighbourhoods of the city. These monuments, elaborated with paper maché and wood, depict different scenes with an ironical and acidic touch. During the festivities diverse acts are celebrated such as the entertaining Cabalgata del Ninot or the floral offering to the Virgen del Rebollet. But undoubtedly, the most emotive act of the fallas in Oliva comes on the day of San José with the traditional cremà, in which fire devastates the monuments under the attentive gaze of all the fallera community members.
