The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
One of the biggest cities in Spain, and among the most livelies. It is located on the Mediterranean sea, and you will find beaches right in the very heart of it. During the summer-months it is heavily visited by tourists, and if you want to spend holidays at the beach, with fantastic possibilities for any kind of sports (golf, diving, cycling, tennis, etc. are all very popular here) and a boiling nightlife, together with an ample cultural offer, then Valencia is the place for you.
Important trade fairs confirm Valencia's position as one of the most dynamic cities in Spain, as does the spectacular Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, the "City of Arts and Sciences", a newly constructed area of the city boasting extravagant architecture.
After all that probably you will get hungry , and you have the chance to try Spain's most famous food right where it was born: "Paella Valenciana".
Then Valencia is of course the city where "El Cid", Spain's national hero, fought against the Moors, and popular festivals in the city and many villages around still remind of this epoch.
In recent years, important international sports events like the America's Cup and the Formula 1 Grand Prix on a street circuit at the city's port have put Valencia more than ever on the world map.
The International Week of Chamber Music in Montserrat (Open Air Concert)
In July 2005 Montserrat celebrated its 25th edition of the International Week of Chamber Music with music and a 20 minute firework display, as well as some top class music.
The concerts will take place in Plaça de L'esglesia in Montserrat at 23.00 h. every night in the last week of July for 8 days. The concerts are free if you get an invitation and if you don't, don't worry because they are very cheap anyway! Last year it was about 3 Euros per person.
The tradition of this celebration started in 1981 and it has become more and more important in each edition. But why was Montserrat chosen to hold such an important festival? There are many reasons: -
First of all, for its musical tradition. In fact, Montserrat was the first village in Spain with a local Music School that started in 1923 and has nowadays an important orchestra called S.I.U.M.M formed by over 100 musicians, most of them locals.
Secondly, for the interest of musicians related to the village. Many recognised music teachers and musicians promoted national and international concerts in 1981 and they thought that could be the beginning of a new tradition. Thirdly, we have to say that 'El Palau de la Música' had not been built at that time and there were not many festivals like the one they decided to start.
People from Montserrat have always been very proud to have this exceptional week devoted to music and it was supported from the very beginning by all the local representatives: Ayuntamiento, Sociedad Musical, etc.
Among the most important musicians and orchestras we could mention the following performances: The London Virtuosi (1981), Saint Martin in the Fields (1983), Moscow Orchestra (1993), Lou Bennet Trio (1996), Amatti Ensemble München (1998).
One cannot think about Montserrat without referring to music. It is a musical village that has the honour of having one of the most important "bandas de music" in the area. I am writing this little article to tell you what happened on the 9th July 2005. The local "banda de musica" of Montserrat, better known as SIUM (Socitat Instructiva Union Musical de Montserrat), took part in a music contest in Valencia. 150 musicians, all of them from Montserrat, played in this special concert. The "banda" worked really hard to enter the contest as the level is really high. They rehearsed almost every evening for the last few months. The event took place in the Bullring in Valencia and the entrance was free. The concerts will started at seven and everybody was welcome.
This musical contest is one of the most important in Spain where not only Spanish "bandas" take part but also international "bandas". It always takes place on the first week of July and that year it was important for Montserrat as it's "banda" was there to represent the village. The evening started with the parade of all the participants in the arena. Then each "banda" goes on stage and has it's time to play. Every "banda" must interpret a compulsory work and then a freestyle one. There were four participants and SIUM played third.
As you can see the Bullring in Valencia, which is one of the most represented monuments in the city, is used for many different purposes and one can enjoy a bullfight or a concert in the same place.

Montserrat en Fiestas - Montserrat & It's local festivities
August is the time that Montserrat is ready to celebrate its yearly local festivities. The International Week of Chamber Music, which was celebrated in July, was just the beginning of the festivities. So here you have a brief 'agenda' of what's going on for the last two weeks of August.
Everyone is welcome to enjoy the different events which are organised daily. All of them are free and usually in the street so I hope you enjoy the festivities as we do!
First Day: 19.00h - Gran Cabalgalta - Great parade around the village. It will start at Avenida Jaume I.
Days 2 & 3: 23.00h - Great concerts at the Plaza de la Iglesia by the SIUM (Societat Instructiva Union Musical de Montserrat). Our local orchestra is considered to be one of the best in the Valencian Community and they are perhaps the most important concerts of the year. If you want to enjoy good music in the open air, it can be an excellent opportunity but be there at least half an hour before it starts if you want to take a seat, as it is usually very crowded.
-Days 4 & 5: These are the most important days of the festivities.
On the 15th of August we celebrate La Mare de Deu 'The Virgin Day' and it is a national festivity all over Spain.
On the 16th of August we celebrate a local festivity: The Patron Saint of Montserrat: 'Sant Roc'. The events that will take place both days are very similar:
* 12.00 special mass in honour to the Virgin and Saint.
* 14.00 'Great Mascletá' (day fireworks)
* 21.00 'Procession' in honour to the Virgin and Saint.
* 22.30 'Castillo de fuegos artificiales'. Fireworks at night.
16th- 17th August. Gran Berbena: Big Dancing Party in Plaça Constitució (Avenida Jaume I). It will start at 01.00 AM and will go on all night long. It usually finishes at 07.00 a.m. If you want to dance, drink and enjoy all types of music you mustn't miss this big party but remember to take a siesta in the afternoon! The dance usually starts with traditional Spanish Music and goes on with Latin music, salsa, the typical summer hits. From 4.00 you can enjoy more trendy music: techno, rock, heavy, funky, etc.
21st August - New trendy music at the sports centre. A great mobile disco that will start at 9.00 and will finish at 07.00.
From the 18th to the 27th of August - Fira Taurina- Bull Fair
There are several events that can be summarised as follows:
Every day at 13.00 h. The Village centre is closed as the 'PROBA Y ENTRADA' takes places. How to define it? Bulls and cows running up and down the streets and people running in front or behind them for two hours. Many times the bulls are just an excuse to meet your friends and have a beer, joking and having fun. I have been many times and haven't even seen a horn!!!!
Every night at 23.45 h. Different events depending on the night. They are usually much more interesting than in the evening:
* Bull or cow contests (the winner is of course the bravest).
* 'toro embolado' Bull on fire (they place two special balls on the bulls' horns and they light them. Of course the animal doesn't suffer. These events take place in the bullring but if you want to see the toro embolado it will also be in the street on the 18th. 19th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th of August. More or less at 2.00 AM.
* Rodadors contest- Bull acrobats, etc.
27th August - At 24.00 in Plaça Constitució- Big Dance similar to the big one on the 16th but this one to say goodbye to the festivities.
And that's all! Everybody in Montserrat enjoys the festivities a lot and I hope you so also! As you can see there is a wide variety for you to choose from, so choose which you like and have fun!!!!!!!
