Cremada de falles (Burn of falls). 28/06. 22h30


Ordino 150 150 Prometheus.Museum

After dying out in the 1950s, this festival in Ordino is the most recent to be revived. The trunk of a black poplar is erected in Ordino on the day of the festivities, which begin at 10:30 p.m. in the Plaça Mayor, with traditional dancing and children’s falles. As in other Andorran villages, the children’s falles are accompanied by pipes and drums. Then the fallaires carry the falles along the carrer Major, and other streets to the Prat de Vilella car park. Once there, the children make an appearance around the maypole, which is then set on fire by the falles. In addition, the dance group also perform the Sorteny Valley witches dance, which has recently been revived.
