Loca gente
The Fallas is the biggest annual Valencian celebration. It is a world famous street party, a spectacular celebration of Valencian tradition for the locals and an enormous cosmopolitan festival for the visitors. Originally, in the middle ages, the Fallas-Sculptures were just a pile of old junk that got burned after the winter. Then people began having fun - dressing the junk into old clothes, drawing faces on it and engaging in satire.

Street faces
 Falla Infantil : Falla for children, stories about animals, cartoons...

Beautiful womens walking around the streets in their traditional costumes. These costumes mean a lot to these people. The cheapest dress you will see on the street will cost around 1500 euros.

Lots of people chillin'

La Lonja de la Seda:  Built in the beginning of XVI century, La Lonja (Silk Exchange) is the real emblem of the Golden Age of Valencia - the times when this city was one Europe's main cultural and economic centres - and this is precisely why La Lonja was built.
Orange garden inside: Is it a sign?

The first two floors were the main function rooms, with the upper one hosting a richly decorated ceiling - a masterpiece of medieval art which had the King ride out of the capital just to see it.
