Water Tribunal, Valencia, July 2019

Valencia’s Water Tribunal ceremony was, declared a Unesco site of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2008. The process is re-enacted every Thursday at noon at the Cathedral’s Door of the Apostles and is a popular viewing activity. I found a bar with very welcome cold drinks just to the side so I could watch the comings and goings in relative comfort in the summer heat.

  1. I’ve had 3 holidays in Valencia yet never managed to see this although I was aware of it and the history surrounding it. My Spanish friends with whom I was staying never suggested this, possibly they thought it too old-hat to make it worthwhile dragging me there! Thanks for the heads-up, I’ll make sure to get there on a Thursday next time.


  2. I had to check up on this (of course!) and unlike other subjects, the entries in the English and German wikipedia are very different (not contradicting each other but focussing on completely different aspects). Anyway, the German entry states that the proceedings are short for a “lack of cases” (I had been wondering about that), however, if a case is brought the sentence is legally valid and cannot be appealed. Thanks for the history lesson, Debbie!
