Medieval culture,history and excellent food in Xativa,Valencia
« back

Another year passes and spring here is quickly changing to summer(today 9th May we reached 31ºC).As mentioned before this time of year is full of celebration and many towns in the Valencia / Alicante area are celebrating their fiestas. The Borgias Weekend  is by no means a traditional
fiesta but it gets people out on the streets of Xativa.This weekend of cultural and gastronomical fun takes place on  2nd and 3rd June. Being the hometown of the two Borgia popes makes Xativa a centre of historical tourism and this weekend is organised by the local town hall for people to visit Xativa, have a good time, learn about the Borgias,see how artisans worked in those medieval days and try the excellent local gastronomy.After the success of the last two year this year's cultural activities are especially designed for people to enjoy their visit to the town. We will post a couple of videos here or on our blog The Artichoke Adventures once we have been to the activities.
