Best Easter plans for the whole family

The long-awaited Easter holidays and good weather in the east are just around the corner. If you are thinking of visiting Valencia this Easter, here are the best plans to enjoy this Holy Week 2024:

The most maritime Valencian Holy Week

During Holy Week, Valencia invites you to discover its processions in the maritime neighbourhood, a celebration declared of National Tourist Interest that offers a wealth of history and tradition just a few steps from the beach. The old fishing villages of El Grau, El Cabanyal and El Canyamelar, commemorate the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ.


Its origins date back to the 15th century, linked to the customs of ancient fishermen, making it one of the most original and authentic Spanish Holy Weeks, the second most important in the capital of Turia. Enjoy sunny days with temperatures of up to 24ºC during your getaway, savour the typical paella by the Mediterranean Sea and the authentic horchata in the city centre or on the beach.

Enjoy the sunset in the Albufera

Do not miss this photogenic plan in your itinerary to enjoy Valencia. A few kilometres from the city is one of the most beautiful natural areas in Spain, the Albufera Natural Park. Relax, get out your camera and enjoy the rice fields, the vegetation, the fauna and, of course, one of the best sunsets in the city.

Take advantage of your route to try one of the most traditional restaurants and their terreta dishes. Very close to the Alñbufera is the Saler route, a virgin beach and kilometres of trails that cross the pine forest. Enjoy nature in its purest form without leaving the capital.

Family hiking day

Valencia offers you much more than just beaches. You can also enjoy hiking routes through its mountains. El Garbí, for example, just 30 minutes from the capital, is located within the Sierra Calderona Natural Park and offers incredible views. It is one of the best Easter plans to spend the day with the family.

Try typical Valencian cuisine

And since being on holiday means skipping diets and worries, it's a good time to try everything. Sybarites and lovers of gastronomy, the Valencian Community is designed to be enjoyed. During Holy Week, you can taste the most typical dishes of the season. 

In addition to the Valencian paella, we talk of the most typical Valencian dessert during Easter week is la mona, a kind of sweet pastry in different shapes with a boiled or chocolate egg in the middle, and the Easter longaniza, a pork sausage that accompanies this dessert.
