People watching fireworks show - L’Albá de les Falles

Practical Info

The Alba de les Falles is an event that involves all the Fallas committees throughout Valencia. Each committee, in coordination with the JCF and the other committees, sets off their own fireworks, while the bigger and longer display takes place in Plaza del Ayuntamiento.

At midnight, between the 15th and 16th of March, fireworks explode all over Valencia. The longer display is of course the one in Plaza del Ayuntamiento, while the others are normally a bit shorter.

Best spots to watch the firework displays

If you can find yourself in Plaza del Ayuntamiento before the start of the show, you’ll get a good view. But remember that the square starts to fill up quickly, so go there early if you can. If you want an excellent spot to see the show, hotels and apartments rent rooms with a view of the square.

Of course, you can also decide to see a smaller display from one of the hundreds of Fallas committees in Valencia.

Our recommendations

Many people are already starting to find a spot at least half an hour before the start of the display, so watch the clock.


The special safety measures that are put in place at the time of the Alba de les Falles could also affect public transport. EMT bus lines can be diverted, so the best is to ask the driver what the closest stop to your destination is.
