Valencia city guide

Valencia, the 3rd largest city of Spain

Valencia is one of the most important cities of Spain. It is actually the third largest Spanish city after Madrid and Barcelona. Valencia is home to about 890,000 inhabitants, with a metropolitan population reaching 2.3 million people. The city is located on the eastern shore of Spain on the Iberian Peninsula and is the 5th busiest container port in Europe.

Valencia is mostly known for its football team, as least as far as football fans are concerned! But the city is also widely known for the Falles (Las Fallas), a local festival held in March, as well as for paella valenciana, traditional ceramics, traditional dress, the architecture of the City of Arts and Sciences. Another popular event is La Tomatina, an annual tomato fight which takes place in August. Celebrations in Valencia are the most colourful in Spain.

Besides the numerous monuments, historic places, museums and clean beaches, Valencia has a fairly busy cultural life. During the weekend, the nightlife is very lively.

Named after Roman emperor Valens, the city was founded in 137 BC. The thoroughly modern Valencia coexists alongside the cherished antiquities and traditions. Much of this history is colourfully re-enacted in the many annual festivals held in every town and village hereabouts.

Fallas is the biggest of these, an annual Valencia festival in mid-March that closes most downtown streets to traffic, and requires a full year of preparations. The October 9 celebrations and festivities
for Three Kings Day are other good periods to see the history on display in the city of Valencia.

A lively addition to the region’s annual festival schedule takes place in Bunyol, a 40-minute train ride away. La Tomatina regularly attracts 40,000 people, mostly foreign visitors in August for one of the world’s biggest tomato fights.

When in Valencia do not miss its paella, fartons, buñuelos, the Spanish omelette, rosquilletas and squid (calamares).

Do not miss the Central Market in Valencia, Calle Don Juan de Austria and Calle Colon.
