The Valencian Community is made up of three provinces:
Mediterranean region, located south of Cataluña,
is famous for its magnificent orange groves and the beauty
of its long beaches. There has been a harmonious blending of
Mediterranean traditions here while the centuries of Moorish
presence have resulted in a profound Hispano-Moorish heritage.
Valencia is the capital of the region. It
is world famous for its unique fiesta of Saint Joseph, known
as "Las Fallas",
when enormous papier-mache sculptures are set ablaze. The city
has a priceless Gothic-style architectural heritage, including
the Lonja and El Miguelete, the cathedral bell tower.
The Valencian Coast lies alongside the capital, and a short
distance away are two enormous beaches. It also includes other
tourist centres such as Cullera, Gandia and Oliva.
La Costa Azahar (Orange-blossom Coast) stretches to the North
of Valencia alongside the province of Castellon. Its most important
tourist centres are Vinaroz, Benicarlo, Peñiscola, Alcoceber,
Oropesa and Benicasim. Of special interest in the zone are:
Castellon, with its Santa Maria cathedral and the impressive
ashlar-stone façade of the City Hall Building.
Peñiscola, a village located on a
high promontory that is dominated by a medieval castle, within
the walls of which
are houses and streets creatively positioned to take advantage
of the scarce, irregular terrain.
Oropesa, which preserves the so-called Tower of the King,
built in the 16th Century.
The Desierto de Las Palmas Carmelite Convent, located inland
on the same latitude as Benicasim.
Alicante, the capital of the province of
the same name, is the second most important city in the Community
Located south of Valencia, the city has two large beaches and
is dominated by the great Moorish castle of Santa Barbara,
with its marvelous view of the entire date-tree-dotted city.
La Costa Blanca, which runs alongside the
region of Alicante, is one of the most popular tourist zones
in Spain thanks to
its excellent installations and magnificent, large, fine-sand
Benidorm is one of the most important tourist
cities in Spain. It has two splendid, well maintained beaches,
hotel infrastructure and a nightlife full of attractions.
Other important tourist centres of the Costa Blanca are Denia,
Javea, Moraira, Calpe, Santa Pola, Guardamar de Segura, Torrevieja
Of special interest in this zone is the Rock of Ifach in Calpe,
an enormous rocky spur jutting out into the sea. It is one
of the most impressive natural formations on the Mediterranean
