Summer time in Valencia... even in October

Published on Friday, November 10, 2017

The clocks changed to “winter time” last weekend, but in Valencia it doesn’t seem to be already October. The seafront promenade is busy, people are sunbathing and some are still having a swim in the Mediterranean Sea.


Valencia has more than 300 sunny days per year and with its mostly mild to warm temperatures it is a perfect year-round destination. But it’s not only the fact that Valencia is spoiled by temperature and sunshine. Valencia is a very walkable city and every neighbourhood has its own charm and character.


Get lost in the winding streets of the historic city centre, feel suddenly like being in a village around the beautiful Plaza de Benimaclet or wander in the historic fishermen’s neighbourhood Cabañal and contemplate the colourful houses, hidden terraces and wild flowers. There are more and more festivals, also for independent arts, which are a wonderful opportunity to get to know one of the above mentioned neighbourhoods a little better (Festival Intramurs, Benimaclet conFusión, Cabanyal Íntim…).


Probably lying on the beach or sitting on one of the many terraces at the seafront or in the historic centre with the sun on your face will make you most perfectly happy. But there are many more outdoor activities: The 9-kilometer-long urban park Turia Gardens stretches from the Cabecera Park (near the zoo Bioparc) in the West to the City of Arts and Sciences (near the harbour) in the East. You’ll find a running track, indicating the distance and the sights you are passing and in November, the Valencia Marathon will take place.


There are also lots of green spaces for picnics and well-maintained bike lanes. Depending on your time and energy you can continue cycling to the Natural Park Albufera and enjoy a boat trip, and of course a delicious Paella Valenciana - for many, locals and visitors alike, the best way to celebrate a sunny Sunday.


In the middle of this wonderful city you’ll find Hispania, escuela de español, as welcoming, friendly and lively like its surrounding. We are situated in the University area, half-way between the historic centre and the Benimaclet neighbourhood, close to the Turia Gardens and the direct tram to the beach. Hispania, escuela de español is open the whole year round and welcomes new students of any level any time (Absolute Beginners can start every Monday).
