Thousands of people watched as the main structure, a giant statue of Moses, went up in flames in the town hall square.
Las Fallas is a week-long celebration in Valencia held every year to honor Saint Joseph, the patron saint of the carpenter’s guild.
Giant wooden, cardboard, or papier-mâché sculptures, known as ninots, are constructed by groups of people known as the Casal faller.
These figurines are often satirical in nature and used to make political commentary.
After days of parading through the streets of Valencia, the ninots are burned on the final day of Las Fallas during La Cremà.
