We are at the heart of many highlights throughout the year for example the last World Cup of the Motorcycle Grand Prix which takes place on the Circuito Motodrome Cheste / Valencia at a weekend in late October or early November each year and is only 10km away. Test runs of the Formula One also tale place there.
A globally well-known highlight is the "Tomatina" in Bunol (takes about 10 min. to get there), which takes place every year on the last Wednesday in August.
Throwing and bathing in tomatoes is compulsory if you like tomatoes.

Running of the Bulls in Chiva
Directly in Valencia:
L'Oceanogràfic – Europe's biggest marine complex, where different marine habitats are represented (seas and oceans of approximately 100,000 m2)
But even in Chiva there are many “Fiestas” throughout the year which are a very enjoyable part of the Spaniard's lives.
Every year in August there are daily bull runs, many different events and fireworks for two whole weeks.
