If you are in Valencia at Christmas there are a lot of things to visit or to do in our beautiful city! Here are the top 7 things you need to see while spending time here:
1. Playa Ayuntamiento
Standing on the main square is a giant, lit-up Christmas tree. You might think that seeing a gorgeous Christmas tree would be enough reason to give it a visit, but that’s not all there is to do. Next to the tree, an ice skate ring is set up for all to enjoy.
2. Mercado Colon
In this Shopping Centre, you can find a big Christmas crib. That’s not all, however, as it is the perfect place to do some Christmas shopping with or for your friends and family. Hot drinks and delicious food are also being sold, so if you want to give Valencia’s Christmas treats a try, don’t miss out on the opportunity!
3. The Cathedral
In front of the cathedral, you can also find another big Christmas crib. There will be a little market with typical Valencia sweets to try as well. The market has a wonderful feeling to it that warms you up, definitely a must-visit during the colder days!
4. The City of Arts and Science
A part of the city that always looks beautiful, but at Christmas, it somehow manages to become even more gorgeous. You can find an ice skate ring next to the museum, a market full of jewelry, and food trucks as well! The perfect way to start or finish your day after visiting the Oceanografic or the museum.
If you’re spending time in Valencia with your children, worry not. At Christmas time there are a lot of circuses and activities for kids to enjoy as well. Here are the best ones:
5. Circo Gran Felle
Circo Gran Felle is a show with magical aspects and is an impossible journey to an unknown destination. Enjoy this wonderful spectacle brought to you by wonderful and talented acrobats and performers.
6. Gran Circo Wonderland
This is the 12th year that this circus will be in Valencia, you have Clowns and Acrobatics, and a Tarzan, which makes you feel you are in the real jungle!
Besides Circuses, there are other attractions around Valencia to enjoy for both young and old:
A Christmas in Valencia isn’t complete until you’ve visited the yearly Valencian Christmas Funfair. It’s a wonderful place for both kids and adults, where you will find different attractions, cool stands, delicious food, and a ferries wheel. It is wonderful to spend some time here with the whole family, have a romantic night out, or have some fun with your friends!
We hope you enjoy your Christmas in Valencia!
¡Feliz Navidad y hasta pronto!
