Festivals in March

There are two good reasons to go to Valencia in March. One is the sunshine – escaping the lengthy northern winter is often why people hop on a cheap flight to the reliably warm south of Spain. The other is Las Fallas, literally the fires. To mark the end of winter and the coming of spring each year, Valencia goes crazy with fireworks and fires. Pretty well every day in the first weeks of March at 2pm in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, the main square, firecrackers go off in a cacophony of noise known as La Mascleta leading up to Saint Joseph’s Feast Day, March 19th.
