Fallas .....1st to 19th March
The Fires, A famous annual event in Valencia when huge hand sculptured statues, some as tall as 5 stories, are erected all over Valencian town and city streets. On the 19th of March, all the statues are set on fire.
At 2pm every day during this period, very loud fireworks are set off in parliament square in the centre of Valencia City. Well worth a visit and every night a spectacular firework display can be seen in the city.

La Tomatina ......Last Wednesday of August
The famous tomato throwing festival when people from all over the world come to Bunol to take part in a frenzy of tonnes of tomatoes being thrown at each other in the street. An unusual experience to join in or to watch from a safe clean distance. The population grows from a usual 10,000 people to over 40,000 people on this day so book early for this one.

Moto GP Motor cycle racing .....4th to 6th November

Its motor cycle mania in Cheste, Valencia. 20 minutes from the villa to Cheste race track. A must for all motor cycle enthusiasts. Best Idea is to drive into Bunol train station (10 minutes away) then get a short train trip from Bunol Station to Cheste Circuit Station which is right near the race track. Driving can be a nightmare in this area at this time.
 

Oceanographic and Science Centre
Valencia has its new ultra modern oceanographic centre. The biggest sea life centre in Europe, dolphin shows, Beluga whales and much more amazing sea life... a must for all the family. The Science museum is a great day out for all ages and also has an IMAX cinema.

Go Fishing at one of the damns close to the villa or even have a go at water sport at Cortes de Pallas.

There is so much to do the list could go on and on.
