VIEW OF FIGURE BURNING STORY: Fireworks and flames took over central Valencia on Tuesday (March 19) as locals and thousands of tourists celebrated the end of a four-day festival with the burning of over 380 ornate and colourful monuments made up of giant figures known as ninots, in the "Crema de Fallas" (burning of the fallas).

Valencia's Fallas festival is held every year to commemorate St.

Joseph.

Every neighbourhood in the coastal city spends the year building a Falla, only to set it alight at the end of the festival.

Satire and humour often set the tone for the ninots represented in the Fallas.

On Tuesday, Valencia burnt the children's Falla at 23:00 (22:00GMT) and the burning of the main Fallas kicked off at 0100 (00:00GMT) on Wednesday (March 20).
