Fiestas in the Region of Valencia

Fire, music, lights and colour

Do you know that there are dozens and dozens of festivities throughout the Region of Valencia? Fallas, La Tomatina, Moors and Christians, Fogueres, La Magdalena ... Do they sound familiar? You have to know them!

In the Region of  Valencia there is always a party: the smell of gunpowder in Fallas, coinciding with San José or Palm Sunday and Holy Week in the springtime. Les Fogueres de Sant Joan fill the month of June with fire and art while the International Habaneras and Polyphony Contest takes place in July. La Tomatina de Buñol, the last Wednesday of August, is another of the classics. In September we have the Entry of Bulls and Horses of Segorbe and the calendar does not end there. In fact, it is full of multitudinous parties that should be lived, at least once in a lifetime.

In April, Alcoy relives the Reconquista with the Moors and Christians, Requena celebrates its Fair and Harvest Festival in September, there are also the Algemesí festivities; in August, Elche remembers the Mystery and Castellón celebrates Magdalena on the third Saturday of Lent.

All without mentioning the festivities of each town, among other celebrations. Do you realise what you're missing?

There is not a massive and festive event in the Region of València that is not celebrated with abundant pyrotechnics. Popular are the Fallas de València, the Bonfires of Alicante, the Moors and Christians of Alcoy or the Magdalena de Castellón. But one of the most representative shows, where firecrackers and fireworks take an unusual role among neighbours and visitors, is the Cordà de Paterna. A unique event of its kind that should not be missed.
Surrounded by the Sierra de Corbera and the Mondúber on one side, and the blue of the Mediterranean on the other, there is one of the most exciting areas of the Spanish Levante: the Valldigna
