Fuego del Teatro Princesa – doesn’t it sound like another event from Fallas? It kind of sounds like Cabalgata del Fuego, doesn’t it!
Well we came home from a night out this morning at 4 and got greeted by fire trucks. My heart dropped, but I was relieved to see that our house wasn’t up in flames. But it easily could have been. Instead the abandoned theater Princesa got burned to the ground. And I thought La Cremà was at the end of Fallas.
Scary thing is, this is the view from one of our rear windows. It’s a wonder that our house didn’t catch fire as well.
That was fun and we got to finally meet our neighbors.
They still don’t know what started the fire but the theater and the house where the fire started were “okupados”. That means squatters were living illegally in them. Apparently the city had been trying for years to buy the theater.
