Language: Catalan, Spanish and every other language under the sun
Surf report: barrels at the Turia fountain at Plaza de la Virgin. Bring your GoPro for some tunnel shots
Cookie-cutter must see’s: feeling serious? Here’s the serious sights:
Plaza del Reina – the central plaza surrounded by beautiful buildings and cute shops and restaurants
City of Arts and Sciences – 6 futuristic buildings by local architects. They are most impressive at night when the lights are on
Central Market – food market where Valencians shop for local produce of all sorts
Valencia Cathedral and the Holy Grail – The church of Plaza del Reina that’s said to house the cup that Jesus drank from
The alternative cool shit: feeling avant-garde? Here’s the Stoke choices:
Water and wine – we take you here too if you like, to the tiny town of Requena where people are so keen on wine that they douse each other in it…. all the while marching to the tune of the trumpet and horn in their marching brass band.
Paella night at our beachside campsite – Valencia is the home of paella and this here campsite is where our chefs were first instructed on the fine art of paella preparation. All to tantalise your taste buds
After(pool)party – pick this add-on to really sum up an incredible experience. We’re getting wet and wild at a massive club with pools and palm trees and babes galore
Under no circumstances does Stoke recommend….
Going down the superslide at camp with your bum bared to give you some speed
No seriously, Stoke does not recommend:
Wearing flipflops to the tomato fight – you will lose them in the pulpy mass that is the ground beneath your feet
