On October 9th Valencia celebrate the national day of our region. This is a historical commemoration of the date in 1238 when King James I entered the city of Valencia, freeing it from Moorish rule.
Since 1365, every October 9th Valencia Senyera -The Flag- presides acts. It is descended from the balcony of the City Council and moved in civic procession to the Cathedral, where it holds a “Te Deum”, to reach the statue of King Jaime.
