An tour itinerary through Valencia during Fallas festival

This year, Fallas celebrations started on Wednesday, March 15th and will end on Sunday, 19th of March. The 2017 edition presents the uniqueness of being the first one that's recognised by Unesco as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This is the reason why both the locals in Valencia and tourists should not miss out on the special events that will take place during Fallas.

Beyond the town square, which is the place where most of the celebrations are concentrated, the neighbourhoods are the places where you can enjoy all the charm of Las Fallas. Therefore, here we want to present a brief tour that will help you get to know this tradition in all its glory.

Anyone visiting Valencia during the Fallas must pass through Ruzafa neighbourhood, where a perfect blend of tradition and modernity takes place. The streets are lit up and, as per tradition, they smell like gunpowder, which is caused by the explosion of firecrackers. All of this has to be added to the fact that Ruzafa is one of those areas with the highest quality restaurants in the entire city and there are plenty of shows and stalls where you can buy the classic and delicious chocolate fritters.

The next step in this itinerary will take you directly to the maritime. And although there are not so many firecrackers exploding every few seconds there, it still offers the opportunity to enjoy the Mediterranean Sea from the Veles and Vents, a unique restaurant. For its part, you will also have the opportunity to take a pleasant walk through the Marina Real Juan Carlos I.

Next, it's time to move to the neighbourhood of El Carmen. As you may well know if you have ever been to Valencia, within its borders is the historic centre of the city, so it is an excellent opportunity to get to know all its heritage. In addition, you can visit the well-known and prestigious Central Market to buy something or enjoy some tapas with your companions. There is also the Falla Na Jordana celebrations that take place in this district.

Finally, your tour should end in Pla del Remei with a delicious horchata in Colón Market, the most famous market in the city after the Central Market that we have already mentioned before. You can also take the opportunity to go for a pleasant walk along the old Turia river.

In short, Valencia prepares for another year of Fallas celebrations. However, this will be the first time that Fallas festival has been recognised as a World Heritage Site.
