The region of Valencia with more than 500 km of coastline bathed by the Mediterranean Sea invites its visitor to discover all the lovely beaches and to try delicious local cuisine especially famous for infinite rice recipes. More than 3000 hours of sun per year promises a pleasant climate at any stage of the year.
Valencia, the capital of the region, is well known worldwide because of the City of Arts and Sciences, the paella (the most typical rice dish) and emblematic spring festivity the Fallas. Visitors will be able to admire the hidden treasures of the old town: the Cathedral and the Holy Grail kept inside, the Silk Exchange building which forms part of the UNESCO Heritage Sites, or the Central Market, a modernist building which is the biggest place in Europe of its kind…
Relax during a pleasant walk in the old river Turia bed which is now Valencia’s Central Park, 9 km long and which embraces the city center. You can also take a boat ride in one of the biggest wetlands in Spain in the natural park of Albufera, especially if you are an ornithologist!
Do not forget that Valencia is a place to go if you wish to participate in the grand tomato fight, better known as “La Tomatina”, a fiesta held every year in August in a nearby location called Buñol.
