‘III Gran Festa del Dux’ (Themed Visigoth market)
If you visit Riba-roja de Túria in Valencia this weekend (6 to 8 September) you just may be transported back to the Visigoth period. The town will ‘dress up’ for the occasion in an aim to promote this culture.
Visitors will find the themed market around Valencia’s old town, including recreations of some Visigoth trades.
Other entertainment such as workshops, food stalls, theatrical performances, dances and Visigoth music promise to make this market authentic, not to mention the Lords of Pla, Tebdemir and his wife Teodora, along with their soldiers and freedmen.
During these three days there will be guided visits to the Visigoth Museum of Pla de Nadal and to the Pla de Nadal archaeological site, one of the most important of the VII century in Europe.
