Ever wondered through the streets of Valencia and thought: “where do all these beautiful ceramics come from?” I know I have. Well, fun fact: our beloved city is not only the city of oranges and great paella …
If someone would tell you they saw a monkey in the old riverbed of Valencia, would you believe them? Well, fun fact: it’s possible! Told you, Valencia is a box full of surprises.

Whether you’re going to live here for a short time or are planning to become a fully integrated citizen, it’s good to know a thing or two about the national and regional holidays.

“España no es Europa” is what lots of Spaniards often say, literally translated it means: “Spain isn’t Europe.” Newsflash: it obviously is, but the reason why they say this is because Spaniards have such a different lifestyle compared to people from other European countries.
