General Information

It's not much of a challenge to promote Valencia, the city and province, as a tourist destination. The third-most populous urban area in Spain with 1.8 million people, after Madrid and Barcelona, just about has it all. Nestled on the idyllic Costa del Azahar, Valencia could attract crowds on the merits of climate and geography alone.

Valencia stands apart for other reasons besides beach and sunshine however. With a frenetic nightlife and modern attractions, the city offers cosmopolitan contrasts to ancient landmarks, historic medieval quarters and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Toss in a culinary heritage that gave rise to paella, the de facto national dish of Spain, and wonderful provincial countryside and you have one extraordinary city and province.

City of Arts and Sciences

Known as the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències in Valencian, the premier modern landmark in the city is a phenomenal example of contemporary architecture. Built in 1996, the brilliant and immense complex contains a performance hall, opera house, IMAX cinema, planetarium, science museum, oceanographic park and lush gardens.

Valencia Cathedral

With a consecration in 1238, Saint Mary of Valencia Cathedral is one of the most austere landmarks in the city. Built upon a mosque, the architecture is a beautiful mishmash of Gothic, Romanesque, Renaissance and Baroque design aesthetics. The interior contains many important works of art and historical relics.


To get a taste for authentic Valencian village life, the town of Benimaclet, in effect part of the city proper, is a great destination. The ancient Moorish settlement still maintains an independent spirit, as a popular student and immigrant neighbourhood, where Valencian is still the lingua franca.

Barri del Carme

The traditional old quarter of Valencia is a must-see area of the city. Like many medieval sections of Europe, the district has trendy bohemian appeal today, replete as it is with outdoor cafés, restaurants and shops.

The Llotja

The foremost UNESCO World Heritage Site in Valencia was once ground zero for the ancient silk trade in the Mediterranean.


Las Fallas

The main event on the calendar in the province is without a doubt, Las Fallas. The March festival takes place over one week and features a parade of miniature city landmarks, fireworks displays, food and wine vendors and traditional concerts.

Holy Week

Holy Week, or La Semana Santa Marinera, is a merry period of revelry that leads up to more sober Easter observances, every April.

El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía

The superlative performance hall in the City of Arts and Sciences puts on a regular program of opera and classical music throughout the year.

Tomatino de Bunol

In late August the town of Bunol, a mere 40 km from Valencia, transforms into a giant battleground, as more than 30,000 people engage in a food fight of epic proportions to herald the annual tomato harvest.


Valencia, both the province and city, has a rather enviable Mediterranean climate. The fall and spring months do receive occasionally violent thunderstorms.

  • Winter (December to February) 7-17°C
  • Spring (March to May) 9-23°C
  • Summer (June to September) 18-29.5°C
  • Fall (October to November) 10.5-23.5°C
