Valencia – info

Valencia is one of the best places to be around between the 12th & 19th of March when Spain celebrates the famous ‘Fallas’, a grand spectacle in which you can see bonfires & fireworks. At the end of the festivities giant figures made of card board are being burnt.

Also discover remains of the ancient civilisations which once inhabited this vibrant city, in fact the 3rd biggest in Spain. There are lots of exhibitions, fairs, museums & great nightlife up for grabs.

If you’ve always dreamed of being smothered in ‘ketchup’ for a day, take a trip to Buñol on the last Wednesday of August, an approximate 1,5 hours drive away from Valencia city, to join the ‘Tomatina’ street celebrations, surely a very special activity out of your daily routine.

Things to do in Valencia: 

City of Arts and Sciences: Part of the “12 Treasures of Spain”, magestic complex devoted to arts, science & culture, Avant Garde architecture, exhibitions, tours, workshops.

Mercat Central: Stroll along, ask the local vendors, which ingredients you need to cook paella & buy some amazing fresh products – grand modernist building & great atmosphere.

Playas: Take a picnic and enjoy the pretty unspoilt & fine sandy beaches.

Jardines de Túria: Follow the beautiful 5.5km long parkland that snakes through the city. It once was Valencias main river  – pushbikes can be rented.

Ciutat Vella: The old town is housing many spectacular gothic, romanesque, baroque & neoclassical buildings.
