Las Fallas Celebration
If you find yourself in Valencia in March, chances are you will not be able to escape the festive atmosphere of Las Fallas. And why would you want to? As much as the Fallas Festival is crazy, loud and over the board, it is unique and is held so close to the locals’ hearts!
The most intense celebrations take place from March 15th until March 19th. So if you are around that time in Valencia, be prepared. Check the events schedule at your hotel and take up the habit of having a siesta. You will need the extra sleep to carry you through the nightly events!
Valencia Culinary Meeting
Food lovers who find themselves at the beginning of March in Valencia are in luck!
The first annual Valencia Culinary Meeting is on from February 27th through March 5th.
This is a creative union of the most celebrated Valencian chefs with renowned chefs from around the world who are invited to cook together.

The City of Arts & Science
March in Valencia brings lots of sunshine. Which makes the City of Arts and Sciences shine bright against the blue sky like nothing else!
So why not go for a walk in the Turia gardens and take stunning shots of the complex.
Get a glass of refreshing horchata from one of the mobile kiosks.
A Day Trip Inland
Mid-season is good for visiting interior towns, because it can get too cold in winter and too warm in summer.
So if you happen to be in Valencia in March and you have time to explore nearby locations, take a trip to Xátiva or Morella.
Xátiva has a huge castle on top of a hill, that you simply cannot miss!
And the beautiful town of Morella will stun you with its medieval stone buildings, walls and almost perfectly circular shape.
