THINGS TO DO
The array of things to do in Valencia is surprising. Barely a day goes without an exhibition, concert, sports activity or event happening. Many official occasions are celebrated, whether local saint or state holiday.
Discover large events such as Fallas, Three Kings or Easter, smaller happenings indoors and out. Or original language movies within relevant pages on the eGuide.
Flea markets, vintage stores or bric a brac
in Valencia are far more rare than
in more northern European countries.
The Spaniards are not so attracted to
second hand items as other nationalities.
