The Fallas are unique to the Valencia region and are celebrated annually in March. During this time there are plenty of events going on in the town of Denia. Have included some photos of past fallas in Denia and what to expect. Its very loud, very colourful, very beautiful with lots of music and dancing in the streets for all to enjoy.
A total of twelve Fallas Commissions (Fire Monument Associations) participate in the Fallas festival in March. You must not miss these festivities where pyrotechnics and entertainment are the main events.
Music bands performing in the streets, “mascletaes” (firecrackers), traditional music, lunches and popular dinners, fireworks. “Plantà” (settling of bonfires), floral offering parade to Our Lady of Desamparados, etc.
La “Plantà” de las Fallas
Installation of the Falla monuments in various city districts), the “mascletà” (Firecracker Display): a large number of firecracker rockets are fired in each Falla district, at approximately 14:30, which fill the city with noise and gunpowder. the street parades: the “Falleros” (Falla members) dance through the streets accompanied by the music bands of their falla association.
The flower offering to the Virgen de los Desamparados (Virgin Mary of the Homeless)
One of its main events, the Falla members put on their gala costumes and participate in the procession to the Virgin Mary with bouquets of flowers which are deposited in the Statue’s robes.
The “nit del foc” (Night of Fire) Fireworks display
La “cremà” (Falla bonfire)
All the falla monuments are burned, thus concluding the holiday. First, the children’s fallas are burned, followed by the larger adult fallas later on. In Dénia, the falla monuments are not burned at the same time and they follow a progressive order. This allows tourists and residents to enjoy the cremà (bonfire) of several fallas monuments.
If you are struggling with health issues such as BMI too high, Heart Disease, Inflammatory Disease or Depression and the drugs are not working as well as they should why not invest in some wellness sessions created just for you.
Sessions can be online, one to one or in person here in Denia. The Wellness Sessions are available every year from November through to end of February. We recommend a minimum of 5 sessions made up of one 1 hour session per week , plus 20 minutes per day of homework.
