Fallas Festival in La Vall de Boí

They say that traditions are only kept alive if they are celebrated year after year by the people of the territory as something of their own and not simply as an inheritance from the past. The Fallas festival has been a deeply rooted tradition in the villages of La Vall de Boí since ancient times.

Every year, before the beginning of the summer solstice, sometimes coinciding with the local festival, the towns of the Valley run the fallas.

A party related to the cult of the sun, thanking the gods for the crops received and scaring away evil spirits.

The Fallas festival, which is celebrated in sixty-three towns in the Pyrenees and Pre-Pyrenees (34 in France, 17 in Catalonia, 9 in Aragon and 3 in Andorra) has been declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
