The above young Valencian women who wear this very elaborate and expensive dress wear, are known as falleras.

In Valencia, this ancient tradition led to the burning of all the accumulated waste, in particularly the wood, at the end of the winter on the feast day of Saint Joseph. Given the reputed humorous character of the Valencian people, it was natural that the people began to burn “figures of well-known people and situations” events of the past year.
