December Long Weekend in Valencia 2023: Plans and Accommodation

december long weekend valencia 2023

In the blink of an eye we are entering the final stretch of the year and with it comes the long-awaited long weekend in December. It is also known as the Puente de la Constitución (Constitution Bank Holiday) because it is celebrated on 6 December, the Day of the Spanish Constitution, and on 8 December, the Day of the Immaculate Conception. During this period, the Christmas spirit has already taken hold of all of us. For weeks we have been seeing the Christmas lights in the streets and shops, thinking about this year's presents and the Christmas markets filling the streets and squares.

Valencia welcomes these festivities and events with a lot of charm and becomes a magical city. The capital of Turia is always a good plan for various reasons: its Mediterranean climate allows you to stroll through its green spaces practically all year round, it is a tasteful and degustable city, and offers the most fun leisure plans for everyone.

Take the opportunity to get to know the capital of Turia in all its splendor, especially this year when the centenary of the death of the painter Sorolla is celebrated. If you still have any doubts about whether to visit this December, we recommend a list of plans to spend the Constitution Bridge in December in Valencia. Take note!

Valencia has been named European Green Capital 2024 for its commitment to the environment and sustainability. The truth is that the city surprises in its urban area and surroundings with large green spaces and well-kept botanical gardens. The Turia Garden is the ultimate representative of our commitment to caring for the planet. It has nine kilometers of gardens surrounding the city where you can stroll, cycle, disconnect or spend the day.

 But that's not all, the city is very close to spectacular natural enclaves where you can spend a pleasant day in the countryside. We can take some hiking routes in some of the most charming villages near Valencia to spend the day. What are you waiting for to discover them?


Endless gastronomic offers

  • Ice skating: Taking advantage of this time of year, you have the option of visiting the ice rink at the Town Hall and skating in one of the most charming corners of Valencia. Another option is to skate on the ice rink at the Nuevo Centro shopping center, a fun plan where you can finish off your Christmas shopping and have dinner in one of the restaurants.
  • Christmas Amusement Fair: As every year, in the harbor area parents and children can enjoy thrilling rides to push their adrenaline to the limit, tombolas, fairground stalls with different games and stalls with traditional food and sweets.

Finally, come to Caixaforum, a place where you can enjoy exhibitions and family events where your children will learn while having fun.
