San José 2022 Fallas in Benidorm

March 20, 2022

The fire last night put an end to the festivities in honor of San José in Benidorm, after two years without being celebrated due to the situation caused by the pandemic. The city is back to normal after a few days in which gunpowder and Fallas monuments have taken over some streets enlivened by bands, parades and festive events. The commissions of Els Tolls, Rincón de Loix, Benidorm Centro and the Fallera Local Board, are already working, since last night, on the 2023 fallas.

The mayor of Benidorm, Toni Pérez, together with the councilors of Fiestas, Jesús Carrobles, of Sports, Mariló Cebreros, of Equality, Ángela Zaragozí, and the president of the Fallera Local Board, José Alcántara, accompanied older falleras, presidents and commissions of the three festive entities of the city in the 'Nit de la cremà'. The first to burn were the children's faults that did so at 11 p.m. At midnight the fire began to consume the Rincón de Loix monument. At 11:30 p.m. it was the turn of the Falla Benidorm Centro, and the last one to burn was Els Tolls, after 01:00 in the morning. 

An important security device made up of Local Police, Firefighters, Civil Protection and the Red Cross, ensured the normal development of the last of the falleros acts of 2022. Likewise, the municipal cleaning services were used thoroughly during the night to eliminate from the public road the remains of the Fallas monuments, so that the city returned to normality as soon as possible.
