This is a province located at the very center of the Comunitat Valenciana, in the east coast of the Iberian Peninsula, and whose capital is the homonymous Valencia. Two official languages coexist in this region: Valencian and Spanish. Here you will find two very different areas: the mountain area, of a very varied landscape in the inner part of the province, and the coast, with plenty of dreamlike beaches that seem almost to heavenly to be true.
And what can be said about the local gastronomy as it is impossible to talk about it without mentioning the so famous 'paella', the typical dish os this province elaborated with the local star product of its gastronomy, rice, 'horchata' or 'agua de Valencia', and local festivities such as Fallas, and The Tomatina, celebrated in Buñol, which make this province the perfect destination to do rural tourism in Valencia.
Besides, describing Valencia means tracing its more than 100 Km of beach, embraced by the waters of the Mediterranean sea, and which drags many tourists who come to its shores looking fo the perfect destination for their summer holidays. But once the most famous Valencia has been covered, there is the other Valencia of vast historical heritage, and some of the most impressive buildings such as the Lonja de Seda, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and typically medieval and Arab-inspired quartiers that share room with some of the most famous examples of Spanish contemporary art, such as the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, in the capital.
Algemesi, Xiva, Alzira or Chulilla are inland locations that are also worth visiting, and the same applies to the vast natural patrimony of Sierra de Calderona, las Hoces del Cabriel or La Albufera, which combine rough landscapes with the constant presence of the rivers which cut across the whole region.
