Each casal faller produces a construction known as a falla which is eventually burnt. The original history about the fallas it´s that suggests that they started in the Middle Ages, when artisans put out their broken artifacts and pieces of wood that they sorted during the winter then burnt them to celebrate the spring equinox.
