Festivals of the Fallas in the Pyrenees of Lleida

23/06/2019, 29/06/2019, 06/07/2019, 16/08/2019

The arrival of the festivals of fire with the descent of faults in the different towns of the Alta Ribagorça opens the season of festivals in the region.

The fire has been from remote times and almost until our days, an element of great importance for the daily life of the man. This tradition is a survival of the cult of purifying fire. This fire, lit on the top of the mountain, is what goes down to the town with the faults, and walks through it, in order to purify the evil spirits of each and every one of the places of the town.

The faults are resinous trunks of about two meters long, prepared by the young people of each town. The descent starts from a high place in the mountain, visible from the village where there is planted a pine called "lighthouse" which is where the flaws are lit before starting the descent guided by the major or foreman. The flames give a tone of magic and charm to the whole environment. The sound of the bells, on arrival in the town, is spread and in the square cake and wine for everyone is taken out.
