We see the Flower Parade, the Mascletas, the Dressing of the Virgen’s Cloak, the Fallas by day and by night, the Illuminated Streets, the Fire Parade, the Nit de Foc (one of the biggest firework displays in Spain) and of course the Burning. All this for 215€ per person with 3 nights BB hotel just 20km out of Valencia, coach transfers into and out of Valencia and of course the EuroTourGuide maps and information, so you miss nothing.

There are just 2 rooms left for the AP Tennis Open in Madrid in May, and you can already book onto the Spanish Open Golf in Madrid in October.

After the busyness of Christmas and the Three Kings, this weekend is unusually quiet in the Costa Blanca South. The Miniature Trains will be chugging around the Miniature Track at Torrellano as the Friends of the Railways Association offer rides for 1,50€ per person on Sunday morning. The San Anton celebrations will begin in the City of Alicante this weekend with the oening of the Porrate stalls, traditional games and a giant sausage.
The programme of free Guided Visits throughout the Region of Murcia has been released for 2020, so you can now reserve your place.

In both of these towns the traditional Pine Tree will be burnt on Saturday evening, and the Animals Paraded and Blessed on Sunday morning.
