Welcome spring during Fallas of Valencia

This festival is all about welcoming spring. Originally this was a tradition by carpenters in Valencia who would celebrate the arrival of spring on 15th – 19th of March. Now, we can’t say that this particular date always feels like spring, but that’s not stopping Valencia from throwing a colorful street party with what seems like an open-air dance party. Don’t forget how close you are to Barcelona when you visit Valencia.. ;) Maybe an idea to combine the festival with a weekend in Barcelona before or after. Did you ever consider a train adventure from Spain to France? Then read this chronicle from a train holiday through Spain and France.
