Part of Fallas is the annual competition of lights, and traditionally Calle Sueca in Russafa carries off the prize.
It’s not hard to see why. While most streets in Valencia content themselves with modest and tasteful strings of lights, Sueca really goes over the top. Think: Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation.
It’s beautiful, though, even if I wouldn’t want to live there. Apparently, there’s an annual battle between the lights’ organizers and the street’s residents (who, strangely, don’t seem to be the same people). Looks like the organizers won this year.
