Located below Catalonia, this is the land of oranges and the famous Paella. There are (3) provinces: Alicante, Castellon and the capitol Valencia. In this region many people speak "Valenciano" which is very similar to "Catalan". The provinces of Castellon and Valencia offer plenty of forests and mountains, while Alicante is more desert-like with arid land and dusty mountains throughout the province. The city of Valencia has become a popular European tourist city within the last couple of years, offering "La Ciudad de las Ciencias", hosting the Americas Cup, Formula 1 racing, and the ATP tennis tournament in November. Many great seafood restaurants are found throughout the coast, as well as some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. There are many great castles (including the castle of Xativa, the castle of Morella, the castle of Peniscola, and many more), and little villages that offer a simple humble life. Every March, the city of Valencia does it's bizarre fire fiesta of "Las Fallas", with giant wood and plaster statues (some costing as much as $100,000). The wine region of Utiel-Requena is now making some excellent wines from the local grape "Bobal". The province of Alicante is also known for their "Turron", a Spanish delicacy made of almonds.
