  • Denia Fallas 2008

    It's March 19, Saint Joeseph Day and the last day of the Fallas Festival when they burn the fallas, known as the Crema....we took a trip to Denia, 6 miles away, which is about the most southern city in the province that celebrates with fallas.

    Here's some background from last year in Valencia.



    It's an annual event any wood burner should love!

    Denia's adult fallas

    The adult ones are the big ones, usually provocative.

          Thanks for sharing those Jim,

          I am very envious. Drinking a beer sitting outside on the Marquez di Campo on a warm spring day. You can't beat that.

            Is the festival going on this year? One of the news services here says thaat the feast of St. Joe has been suspended because it interferes with the Easter liturgy.
            St. Joseph's Day? Not in 2008

            Of course, I suppose I could find a priest and ask
            Un amico degli amici.

              Yep....I think I took those pictures yesterday Nothing get's in the way of the Valenciano pyrotechnical fiestas!

              It's March 15-19, every year.

              Now we finish off the week with Semana Santana processions (Good Friday religious processsions through the old Xabia town to carry the Virgin from the main town church to the church above the stations of the cross). They decorate local crosses and street shrines with fresh flowers and hang out tapestries along the route. Fun to follow along with a candle.....then go to the Feria Artesana (Easter Art Fair).

                Jim, we live in Moraira and are thinking of going to the "burnings" in Denia this year.
                Could you give us a hint of what time they start, the best place to park, and where to be at the best time?
                Thanks a lot.

                  We usually go for the last night which is the 19th. If you go early, you can walk around and catch all the Fallas sculptures during the day to see them. Otherwise, go in the evening. We can usually find a place to park south of town along the seafront. they burn the kids fallas first and then go around town to burn the adult ones...follow the crowd!

                  We are going to Valencia this year to catch the fallas there.

                      We just returned from a glorious two weeks at Xabia Jim's and Xabia Vaughn's villa in the mountains overlooking the Med near Alicante. To say it's a super region and a spectacular villa is far too much of an understatement. XJ and XV were not only wonderful hosts, they introduced us to places and sights we never would have found on our own. We even survived the Valencia mosh pit of the burnings of the ninot, fireworks and mascletas by Pirotechnia Valenciana in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento. Still a bit on the deaf side. Wood fired duck at the Corral del Pato, amazing olives and oranges and capers and seafood and wine, great markets; it's still a blur.

                      Took a bit of time, naturally, for a bit of wood fired bread instruction using the villa's Spanish oven.

                      Anyone looking for a truly beautiful place to stay in the Costa Blanca should contact XJ for more info. You'll never be the same.
