Sagunto, Spain

Las Fallas

Sagunto, Spain during the Las Fallas celebration.

Every year before Easter, the Spaniards build these massive statues for the festival called Las Fallas. Hundreds of sculptures spring up all over Valencia and the outlying villages for a month before the festival. Then, to celebrate the arrive of spring, they slowly burn them all one by one on the same night. To an attendee, it feels like the whole world is on fire!
