Valencia is the capital of the Valencian Community, a Spanish region in the Mediterranean Coast, founded by the Romans, conquered by the muslims and finally reconquered by the Christian King James I in 1238. It preserves vestiges of the many civilizations that lived there and it is also famous for its touristic attractions: its urban beaches and the City of Art and Sciences, a cultural complex including a scientific museum, an art museum, the oceanography park and an IMAX 3D cinema which serves also as Planetarium. Climate is warm most of the year and it is specially comfortable at the beginning of September.
