Valencia, an extraordinary city day and night
Publishing date 16/12/2015
The capital city by the Turia river gets dressed up in her best with lights, handcraft, music, activities and, all in all, the Christmas spirit. Valencia is a unique city and it is also trendy. If you haven’t been there yet, Christmas is the perfect time to have a go, because the city looks even better and is ready to welcome countless traditional events. Even if you have already been there, go again ―it will always surprise you with something new.
As we have already said, this Mediterranean city offers you lots of activities all through its streets. The main Plaza del Ayuntamiento (Town hall Square) is the center of most of them. You cannot leave Valencia without visiting the Markets, both for their tradition and the love and care they put on all the activities they organize; the popular route representing the Nativity Scene; Christmas and New Year’s concerts in Palau de la Música; the central Craft Fair; the funny and consolidated San Silvestre race, with its 32th edition; celebrating New Year’s Eve by any of the many parties in the city and, of course, the events all kids are waiting for: Expojove (Childhood and Youth Fair), the Attraction Fair, the ice skating rinks, the Circus, the Christmas choirs all over the different squares and streets of the city and, as a big finale, the great Parade on the 5th of January, where kids play the main role as Their Majesties, the Three Wise Men, arrive to the port of Valencia at 5 pm to go through the city and reach the Town hall Square.
Come to Valencia, a city where hundred-year-old traditions have learnt to live with the features of the modern age, where the sea and the city live together and where the green from markets and gardens coexist with the urban design of the city. Valencia is an extraordinary city day and night ―just have a look on its program.
