A touch of real Valencia

In Uncategorized on May 10, 2012 at 9:44 am

Popping into a local bar in Valencia can bring great suprises and a taste of real Valencian tradition.
The bar #Trinquet Pelayo is very ordinary looking from the outside, the entrance being just a double door width in the street. But on entering you walk down a small tunnel passageway which opens up into a very nice large bar and seating area. On this ocasion the only other clients were a group of old men playing cards in the corner, how quaint for starters, I was happy.
Then admiring all the photos and trophies displayed around I noticed a doorway which called me to explore.. Low and behold… There was Pelota court! Something I had only seen on the tv until now.
Now anyone who doesn’t know what Pelota is… Nor do I really, except it is a very traditional Valencian game where 2 people or pairs whack a small rubber ball from one end to the other with bare hands, and not only do they have a net in the middle but the audience are also within the boundaries of the court!!

Anyone in Valencia interested… They play Thursdays and Saturdays. I will certainly be popping along.
