VALENCIA

 
Valencia, Spain´s third largest city, is a modern, vibrant city renowned for its amazing nightlife. Set in an a rich agricultural region to the east of it (Levante) it has been occupied by the romans,visigoths and moors before Jaime 1 of Aragon took control of it permanently. Famous for its fiestas like Las Fallas in March where giant figures are burned or its July Fair. Not forgetting throughout the year the mock battles between the Christians and Moors. The land of la paella or rice dishes, horchata (a tiger nut drink) and of turron made from honey and almonds. There´s a lot more to Valencia than its oranges or football team!
