Offering to the Virgin of the Homeless underground

The Group of Fallas of the Maritime will realize next Sunday 8 of October, like every year, one of its most striking acts, the Flower Offering to the Virgin underground, located in the espigón from the outside of the Real Club Náutico de Valencia.

At the same time, and in sign of Offering, the Falleras Mayores of the Fallas that are part of the Group will throw a flower in the water.

Due to its uniqueness, this event is always very special for all the Falleras Mayores del Marítimo, and alson to be for the Falleras Mayores of Valencia, enjoy of a pleasant morning in the boat, on which will be one of the last acts of their reign.
