Culture that won't bore you
Valencian idiosyncrasies include fire, pyrotechnic prowess and paella
Although València is known around the world for its paella and for Fallas, our cultural impact is much more than that. Because València is characterised by Joaquín Sorolla’s paintings, the literature of Blasco Ibáñez and the cartoons of Paco Roca as well as rice dishes of well-known chefs.
So, if you are a culture lover, you won’t leave unsatisfied.
Because we are a region of bands, and thanks to this passion for music, we host some of the big music festivals and events, from independent music to opera.
We also have an extensive network of theatres, with both large and small productions, and 60 cultural sites consisting of museums, monuments and multidisciplinary spaces.
But the culture scene in València doesn’t end there. And there are an ever-increasing number of young Valencians that stand out internationally in sectors like fashion, dance, cuisine, audio-visual production… If you don’t want to miss anything, take a look at our calendar and prepare your cultural visit to València.
