Access to the sites is restricted for safety reasons. For this reason, it is forbidden to enter the enclosure in Plaza del Ayuntamiento on the 15th at night. All the other Castillos de Fuegos take place in the 9th tramo of the Turia Park. Access to that section is therefore forbidden.
To be specific, the closed off bridges for the occasion are: Puente de la Exposición, Puente de las Flores, Puente del Mar.
In terms of streets, the whole Passeig de Ciutadella and the stretch of the Alameda between Puente de la Exposición and Puente del Mar are off-limits. Additionally, Puente del Real and Puente de Aragón are also closed off for vehicles.
In any case, we recommend you get there on foot or by public transport.
Best spots to watch the firework displays
For the Castillos in the Turia Park, it’s best to be on the nearby bridges or at the sides of the park. This means Puente del Real and the Puente de Aragón offer an excellent view - there will be no cars allowed on them so you can safely occupy the bridges.
You can also go to either end of Puente de Aragón (with Plaza de América and Plaza Zaragoza). Other viable options are the area surrounding the kiosk La Pérgola on the Alameda or even Calle de l’Arquitecte Mora and its surroundings.
When choosing a spot to watch the Castillos de Fuegos, always make sure that your view is not impeded by trees or urban architecture.
Try to go early, as many people are already starting to find a spot at least half an hour before the start of the display.
The special safety measures that are put in place at the time of the Castillos de Fuegos can also affect public transport. A lot of EMT bus lines are also diverted, so the best is to ask the driver what the closest stop is.
The Alameda metro stop is generally closed before the display for safety reasons, so you shouldn’t take it into consideration when trying to get there.
