Welcome to Valencia

Valencia, city founded by the Roman Empire, has seen as various cultures and people has passed through its streets, helping to forge a singular identity in a privileged enclave on the shores of the Mediterranean sea.

Its enviable climate has made of this beautiful city, an open place where life is celebrated in its streets, as well as in its squares and gardens, something that its inhabitants share with the rest of the world, especially during its festivities.

The Falles

Falles, Heritage of Humanity, are one of the most popular celebrations in the world. During Falles, the city gets full of monuments made of cardboard and paper-mâché, known as fallas, full of «ninots» (figures that represent people and animals) being these a satyrical representation of the present day.

Light, music, firecrackers and fireworks fill the city's streets for several days until the «Nit de la Cremà» (the final night of the festivities), when fallas are burned, in a metaphorical representation of eliminating the bad of the past and celebrating the arrival of Spring with a renewed and optimistic spirit.

How good is the mobile data coverage?

Pretty bloody good, but the very center of Valencia, around Carmen neighbourhood, GPS can get really tricky due to street width.


Are all the missions easily accessible?

Yes, most are close together, there are some further out for people who like to do a lot of walking. Valencia, being a mediterranean coastal city is also a flat area so there are no hills to walk up and down during the missions. Opening and closing times are available for both banner and MD missions on the Mission Guide and Information pages.


What if the Police ask me what I’m doing?

Show them your scanner and tell them that you’re playing a game called Ingress (precursor to Pokémon). Local police has been warned and will be around in case you need some help with directions, etc... Most have heard what it is, if it is one that hasn’t, you’re more than likely going to be at a portal and can show them a tiny bit about it. Don't be silly and shout about blowing up portals and please abide by the law at all times. Do not bring yourself, other players, or the game into disrepute by doing otherwise.
