Welcome to the new Valencia Provincial Council’s Tourist Board website, a tool designed to promote our tourism resources throughout the world. Ours is a privileged land, one in which the climate, the beauty of the inland landscapes and our extensive golden beaches combine with the history and culture of our villages, towns and cities. A wide offer which, together with the exquisite local cuisine, positions us as a leading tourist destination.
We have created a dynamic and easily-navigable website that is useful for citizens, for companies operating in the sector and for the municipal authorities, and which contains information about our tourism offer. Furthermore, our online presence extends to a tourism blog and the social networks Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram. A strong commitment from the new Provincial Council to an increased presence in 21st century communication media.
The promotion of this important economic sector and the creation of new jobs figure among the new Valencia Provincial Council’s objectives. It is therefore a source of great satisfaction to see the arrival of an increasing number of tourists to our region: tourists who leave satisfied, due to the ever-improving quality of our offer.
I would also like to encourage Valencians to discover our province, to visit our villages and our towns. We have to be the principal visitors to and connoisseurs of our landscapes. Because to know is to love, and we must love that which is closest to us. With the help of the Tourist Board’s website, you will be able to discover hiking routes, cycling activities and typical local dishes, among the many other attractions that our province offers.
The Provincial Tourism Board’s website is the ideal platform for those who want to visit and discover this area, which is rich in culture, heritage and history, as the essence of the Valencian people can only be felt by participating in the local festivities, immersing oneself in our natural, historical and artistic heritage, sampling one of the rice dishes that have given us such renown, walking along our interminable beaches and visiting the breathtaking landscapes of the interior. We are waiting for you.
Jorge Rodríguez Gramage
President of the Valencia Provincial Council.
