Summer Photography Course

by meash

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of any photography workshops running over the summer. I fancy the idea of visiting Valencia for 10days, and taking a course for a week.
Suggestions please! :)

Travel Tips for Valencia

Valencia had a wide choice of...

by DAISYCHAIN

Valencia had a wide choice of cuisine including traditional spanish cafes , fast food restaurants such as Mcdonald equivelents, and sandwich shops. There was something for all tastes. There were many designer shops for clothes shopping lovers and a huge 4 story toy store which sold a variety of toys for youngsters, ideal for presents to take back home!
During the week ther was a huge market in Valencia open, which offered a variety of fresh fruits and vegtables. The tall gothic buildings are just totally amazing. The decor of these churches and cathedrals look so delicate and it is fasinating knowing that they were built in that design and at that height all those years ago!

Alameda

by DanielF

The new neighborhoods built on the other bank of the river, along the Alameda have become one of the most posh residential areas in the city. If you see the views from the appartments facing the river, you will understand why.

Mascletaes

by DanielF

The love of Valencians for firecrackers, gunpowder, noise and fire is difficult to grasp for a foreigner. Almost every single event, public or private, will end with the explosion of a noisy set of firecrackers (a mascletà). This passion is pushed to the limit of what a normal person can bear during the Falles.

During that week, every day starts with a despertà: an early morning firecracker display that will set you in the tone for what you will have to endure during the rest of the day. Virtually every person, from children to their grandparents, is armed with a set of matches and firecrackers that they throw continuously with mischievous faces to the dismay of the most nervous types out there.

But nothing compares to the daily mascletà on the Plaça de l'Ajuntament. Every day, at two o'clock, crowds and crowds gather there to watch or, rather, to experience an amazing display of firecrackers commissioned by the city to the most celebrated pyrotechnics. You may wonder what is there to see, apart from smoke, a horrendous noise that makes the earth tremble, the smell of the powder and all those crowds gathering to witness it. But, apparently, the mascletaes have their rhythm and make attendants get such an adrenaline shot, that one has to experience them in person to really understand what they are about.

You should be aware, nevertheless, of the fact that many kilos of gunpowder are released and, although security measures are very strict, it is a potentially risk activity and several years people have been injured.

Port Saplaya

by LuigiMS

Port Saplaya is one neighborhood located North from Valencia and between the sea and the highway to Barcelona. It's a very beautiful and quiet place with colorful and peculiar apartment blocks surrounding an artificial lake which acts as a harbor basin, and which is full of yatches and little vessels. Port Saplaya is just for pedestrians on the inside and has some narrow and still streets.

City of Arts and Sciences by night

by SirRichard

This new cultural complex offers by night an incredible view. Most of the buildings (museums...) are closed by night, but they are all lighted, so a walk around the place can be a rewarding experience...
