Fallas 2011

by chizz

Hi there
I have found a hostel which has vacancies for 13-20th March, 2011 for a very good price but it is located by the City of Arts and Sciences. I thought this was a good location as I would like to get a little bit of sleep during the festival! I know this is some way from the centre, there is no metro station close by, but there are buses. Will these buses be running to the centre and back to the hostel during fallas, as I have heard that only the metro will run for 24 hours during the festivities. If there are no buses (due to street closures, etc), it is possible to walk back to the hostel or are taxis freely available at this time of yr. Would I be better finding a more centrally located hotel/hostel? Any recommendations for one that is fairly cheap and located away from too much noise? - or close to a metro station...
Also, will all the tourist attractions be open during the time I am there?
Thanks in advance for any info you could share....

Hi,

I think that this hostel is a good option for your holidays in Fallas since it's cheap and it has vacancies (it's very difficult to find both for these dates!) Anyway I'd recommend you to book the room if you don't have cancellation fees and in the meanwhile to find another hostel more centrally located, if you prefer that. Sleeping in Valencia is hard in Fallas, it doesn't matter where you stay!!!

Regarding transportation to the hostel, in fallas everybody walks! the City of Arts and Sciences is not too far from the centre, maybe 20-25 min walking. Any way, you'll find fun everwhere, not only in the centre! to take a taxy is not very easy because all the people want to get one! but maybe you're lucky ;)

Enjoy the fallas ;)

Fallas 2011

by MaheshSamtani

Hello Elizabeth

I stay in the area of the city of arts and sciences (one of the best locations in the Valencia) and the area is not very far away from the city center. Valencia is a small city and the center is just around 3 kilometers. There are good bus services. Work is going on the new metro line which passes by this area and is supposed to be over by the end of this year We have our fingers crossed as due to the recession many ongoing projects have been delayed.
If you want give me the name of the hostel and I will check it up for you and inform you regarding the noise etc., I would not recommend you to stay in the city center as it is always more noisy due to the festivity activities and specially because the permanent crowds getting here from all parts of the world.
All city attractions are open and up for business as usual. Send me any other doubt or question that you could have. Don’t get worried about the bus services during fallas. Most of the streets are closed but there are connections that will drop you nearby. The main arteries of the city are always working, so not an issue at all.

I have quites some tips regarding the different ativites of the fallas on my pages,they might help you. As I have mentioned before, please feel free to ask for any further help for your trip to Valencia and nearby areas. I will be glad to help.

Best regards
Mahesh

It is considered, that the Roman legionaries have founded Valencia in 138 up before Christmas. In 714 the city which was belonged to westgothic kings, has been won by arabs. In 1094 legendary Castilian knight Sid has won Valencia. He was the governor of the city during 5 years. After his death Christians left the city, preliminary having destroyed it. Valencia comes back under authority of Muslim governors. In 1238 Jacob - Jaume I finally expels moors from Valencia. The city joins Catalunia kingdom.

La Lonja

by rla

La Lonja is part of the patrimony of humanity of the unesco. It was the commercial centre of Valencia during the 14th & 15th century. This picture is of the main area inside La Lonja.
Now its used for expositions like stamps, or of Ninots (sculptures of wood used in the monumenst of fallas).

FALLAS - CASTILLO

by MaheshSamtani

The fireworks have a very special role in the festival of the Fallas. it is smelling gunpowder all around and everybody seems to be having a great time blasting all sizes of different crackers.
Nothing compared to the castillo that is held every night during the Fallas. They actually start from the beggining of the month of march and as the month proceeds you can enjoy them practically every night. They are prepared from the area near the Calatrava bridge to give a good view to as many people as possible who crown around the many birdges surrounding this area to have live a great experience. Rember 12 at midnight is when the first shot goes off and normally lasts for about 10 minutes unless it is a special ocasion like the Nit de Foc or on the main day of the Fallas - the 19th of March, where they go on for much longer time.

Being crazy at the bell-tower.

by kekky

The octagonal bell-tower, called Micalet or also Miguelete , is the landmark of the city. From there you have a great view over all Valencia, and Victor Hugo has counted 300 more bell-towers in all the city (to control if this number is right could be a challenge to patient and unstressed visitors ...??) To get there, simply take the stairs inside the Capilla Mayor church (in the plaza of Valencia), and the stairs lead you to the roof and the bell-tower.

Here me and my friend are visiting this bell-tower, and enjoying the view of Valencia.

Dance Dance Dance

by MaheshSamtani about GIORGIO ENRICO

One of the most trendiest spots in Valencia if you feel like dancing or just having a great time. The decoration is great with different floors offering a variety of moods to swing to. They also offer a great restaurant with pretty good food. Even though the price is slightly higher than normal standards, the atmospere well deserves the cost. Should you want to have dinner here before you decide to dance your guts off, I suggest you make a telephone reservation. This place starts filling in after around 01.30. maximum crowds get into Geiorgio Enrico around 3 in the morning when other pubs and night clubs close. The show goes on well into the early hours of the next day. In summer they have a terrace area whcih give a totally new dimension to pleasure. A great experience. Better watch your dressing code and specially your shoes to be allowed entry. Do not wear sneakers.
