After Las Fallas, another of the most traditional and traditional festivals of Valencia and of Spain in general arrives: Holy Week and Easter. Holy Week is a Christian celebration, during those days the Catholic Church remembers the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus. The celebration of Holy Week takes place in spring and the days in which it is celebrated are given by the lunar cycles.
In Valencia, we also celebrate Sunday and Easter Monday, with family and friends, and we have the tradition of celebrating it outdoors, on the beach, in the park or in the countryside. If you want to live a traditional Valencian Easter, follow our tips 😉
1.- Eat Easter sausage and of course our authentic Easter cake with boiled egg, or our pancakes with raisins and nut, typical and tradicional sweets in Valencia simply delicious.
2. Visit the “Semana Santa Marinera” In the seaside neighborhood of Cabañal, declared as National Tourist Interest. Here you can find the schedule: http://www.semanasantamarinera.org

Easter is a time of meeting with family and friends and what better to enjoy these days with a Valencian paella, laughter and friendship.
4. Take a walk on the beach under the valencian sun and take advantage of the wind to fly the kite or as the Valencians say “el catxirulo”
