A WEEK-long festival in Valencia celebrating Saint Joseph has seen the burning of a naked Donald Trump standing next to Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Fransisco Franco.
The Las Fallas festival is characterised by the construction of hundreds of wooden, cardboard or papier-mache sculptures, which are called ninots, and often satirise political figures.
Pedro Sanchez made an appearance this year flying in the presidential plane, and other ninots showed Donald Trump’s head on the body of a gorilla, Hitler in pink speedos and a British red telephone box satirising Brexit.
Previous years have seen an effigy of Trump building a wall.
On March 19, the festival celebrating the patron saint of carpenters culminates in a massive burning of the ninots, signalling an end to one of Valencia’s most well-known annual events.
The festival celebrating the patron saint of carpenters dates back to the 18th century, and was recognised in 2016 as a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage.
The event attracts an estimated 1.5 million tourists each year.
