If you’re the type of stag who fancies some Spanish sun, an ice cold beer, a cracking night out and a little bit of culture too, then Valencia is the place to go. In fact, it’s a destination where you can munch beautiful food on the beach front, watch a world class football game, get into a tomato fight and also check out El Greco and Goya in one of the cities renowned museums making Valencia a top choice of city for your stag party.
Located on the orange blossom coast of the Mediterranean, Valencia has grown into the third largest city in Spain and has become a metropolitan hub with bars, clubs and restaurants a plenty and a beach to boot. What’s not to like?
As any footie loving fella will know, Valencia has one of the best football teams in Europe, so it would be a shame to travel all this way and not catch a game with the locals. If you time it well in advance, you could also see the lads play a UK team as well! Although, if you’re liking the sound of an activity you can get stuck into then Redseven can organise a go karting trip to keep the fuel injected buzz running through your stag weekend. Alternatively, if you travel a little outside of Valencia to Bunol on the last Wednesday of August you can take part in the age old sport of tomato throwing in the annual world famous La Tomatina and go home with a truly unique story and the pictures to match.
Valencia has ancient Roman monuments littered around the city, the UNESCO site Llotja de la Seda, the ‘City of Arts and Sciences’ complex and tons of art museums, which is why this destination is a particular favourite for the history buffs and architecture enthusiasts among you, and why it’s one of the most popular cities to visit in Spain. Valencia is also famous for the annual Les Falles festival, a week long festival celebrating Saint Joseph where the the streets are filled with a procession of home made floats which are eventually burnt in a show of fire and lights that rocks the whole city – a site not to be missed! Lastly, for the true taste of Spain, make sure you try some beach side Paella full of fresh ingredients, along with a cold beer because nowhere does the national dish better than the town it originated from.
To top off your Spanish stag weekend in Valencia in style (and debauchery), the city has plenty in the way of bars and clubs to offer any group of stags. The Calle Caballeros area in the centre of the city has a thriving nightlife with lots of bars to be crawled before you end up in a swanky nightclub, while around the football stadium in the Aragon district you can easily grab a few beers after a match and the seafront area of Malvarrosa, leading down to the cool Maritime area, is also lined with little restaurants, bars and clubs if you’re feeling the beach vibe. The choices are endless!
