West Fault: History, Location, First Monuments and Charges

May 01 from 2022 - 14: 05

The West fault is one of the oldest of the Fallas from Denia. In fact, it is one of the largest commissions. Every March they plant their monument in the emblematic West neighborhood, competing in the highest category: the Special Section.

History

Plaza Valgamediós, popularly known as Plaza Oeste, was a point of great activity during the Parties Dénia. In fact, for a time the entrances of the Bous a la Mar They left that point. It was to be expected that the neighborhood would also participate in the birth of a new festival.

First monument

In the year 1948, and after the first fallera experience in Dénia, the West district, together with Centro, Roques and Baix la Mar, planted its first fallero monument. The first plant de la Oeste was preceded by numerous activities that warmed up the atmosphere of the Fallas week.

The commission was accompanied by the military band of the Regiment No. Vizcaya. 14 of Alcoy, and inaugurated a Valencian barrack, under the name of Pica i Vola, gathered the neighbors for moments of relaxation.

First prize

The West fault has always been one of the most competitive, managing to win the first prize up to 16 times. The first of them was achieved in 1950, the third exercise in the history of the party, being the second time that the commission participated.

The controversy of the fault of l'Infern

It was in 1951 when the Dianense artist Juan Bisquert planted the so-called l'Infern fault. It was a monument that represented the seven deadly sins and that impressed both residents and professionals in the sector, becoming the history of the festival. In fact, the Penya del Tro de València gave him the distinction of best failure planted in Dénia that year. However, the jury gave him a surprising second prize (Baix la Mar won that year).

Jump to the Special Section

La Local Board Fallera, in 2007, decided to divide the Dénia competition into two categories, depending on the budget of the monuments. Since that year, the West fault has always participated in the Special Section, being one of the four Dénia commissions competing in the highest category until today.

Location

The Falla Oeste plants its two monuments from the first year in the Plaza Valgamedís, also known as Plaza del Oeste.

History of charges

Since its inception in 1949, the West Fault has had adult representatives. Its first president was Rafael Plà, who was accompanied by Josefa Blanquer as Fallera Mayor. We had to wait until 1951 to see a child president for the first time, a position held by Joan Antoni Chorro.
