Next Monday October 9 is the Dia de la Comunidad Valenciana (Day of the Valencian Community).

The Day of the Valencian Community marks the anniversary of King James I of Aragon’s capture of the city of Valencia from Moorish forces in 1238. It is also the Day of Saint Dionysius, a traditional festival for lovers.

The day is an annual public holiday across the Valencian Community. Most businesses and other organisations are closed.

Most stores are closed, although some bakers and food stores may be open. Public transport services may run to a reduced schedule.

Parades and other public events may cause some local disruption to traffic, especially in the centres of towns and villages.
