• The place to watch the solemn processions of Semana Santa is Cabañal....
• Arguably Europe's biggest and craziest party is on now, and continues through to Thursday 19 March . ...
Colour, fire, fireworks (both day and night - no, really!) fabulous traditional costumes, parties in the street, huge and colourful papier maché monuments (600 of them, all to be buned the night of the 18th of March when the whole city is ablaze with flames from the burnings and the fireworks that accompany them. Don't forget to watch the ofrenda 50,000 men an women in traditional costume carrying flowers to adorn a huge wooden Madonna and child, watch the Cavalcade of fire down Valencia's main shopping street, marval at the lights in Calles Sueca and Cuba and eat Buñuelos and chocolate.
• We're sorry to have to tell you that this year we won't be running our famous tour...
It isn't logistically possible for thisisvalencia.com to run the tour this year. As you probably know from reviews and from friends who have joined and loved our tour in previous years, this is a family affair. Unfortunately all four members are in far-flung corners of the world this August, so it is with great regret that we will have to bow out this year. But if you are planning on coming to Valencia and Buñol for the festivities in 2016 let us know, we plan to come back stronger and better for La Tomatina 2016. Until then, you'll have to try one of our competitor's tours. Sorry and thanks for your growing support over the past nine years.
