Orchestral Concerts in Mercado Colón

Do you enjoy Sunday morning coffee? Free stuff? Orchestral concerts? Stunning historical buildings?

Free Concert Valencia-1
Free Concert Valencia-4

If you said “yes” to at least 2 out of 4 of these things, we recommend you wake up (relatively) early on Sunday and head down to the beautiful Mercado Colón, where you’ll be able to enjoy a series of free classical music concerts. The concerts start at noon; if you want a seat with a good view of the band, show up on time. But the music fills the entire hall, so it’s not necessary to sit close to the orchestra to be able to enjoy it.

Free Concert Valencia-2

Here’s the schedule for the rest of 2008, with the participating bands — please note that the concerts happen most but not every Sunday. Again, they all start at noon.
