La ofrenda

Offering flowers to the Virgin of the Helpless.


La Ofrenda is one of the most emotional events of the Fallas. During the 17th and March 18th, all the Fallas of Valencia parade through the Plaza de la Virgen to offer bouquets of flowers to La Virgen de los Desamparados (the Virgin of the Helpless),Patroness of Valencia.

With branches that carry all the falleras, the mantle of flowers is done, whose design varies each year. Each committee is assigned the color of flowers to form the pattern designed.

Committees parade through the streets of La Paz and San Vicente Street, past the Plaza de la Reina and accessing the Plaza de la Virgen down the street Micalet and street Barcella.

The image of the Virgin is in the center of the square and committees parade on both sides of it.
