Valencian Culture

CULTURE BEYOND THE FLAMES

Valencian idiosyncrasies include fire, pyrotechnic prowess and paella

Valencia is Fallas , the festival declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, though its global cultural impact does not end there. It encompasses music, art, literature, cinema and dance. It’s a land of bands, great festivals and opera. There's also an extensive theatre network with small and large-scale performances regularly showcased across the city, and up to 60 cultural complexes, including museums, monuments and other versatile spaces. The city’s fashion offerings go far beyond the traditional embroidered silk, reaching international catwalks. Valencia is the masterpieces of Joaquín Sorolla, the literature of Blasco Ibáñez, the graphic novels of Paco Roca and the paellas of its finest chefs.
