Each March, the people of Valencia, Spain, set their city streets ablaze.

In the lead up to Las Fallas, “the fires,” neighborhood teams spend months creating massive wooden and polystyrene sculptures whose raucous characters – some life-size, some 50-feet tall – look like a cross between My Little Ponies and the tortured souls of a Hieronymous Bosch painting.
