Gentle reader, Fallas ended on March 19, and I am just now posting some more pictures from the event. The weather was really unsuitable for this past Fallas, making picture-taking jaunts a little difficult. However, I think you might appreciate a few of the pictures that I did take. Many of these were before or after activities where rambling around the city was part of the day. Thankfully, Valencia is perfect for walking around and enjoying attractions, and the activities around the festival were not only the amazing pieces of art, but the people themselves definitely made this a memorable festival.

First up, very near where I live – I believe is a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde theme. This is shortly after the main part was erected, and you can see it is several stories tall.

In the city center, the falla was one of the lions that adorns the National Congress building in Madrid. Click here to see some pics of the originals.
