"The gods of Olympus move to live in Valencia."

"Zeus, the father of all the gods, with his cherub Calatrava. The goddess Flora with its famous flower offering. The goddess Aphrodite with her love for the traditions and festivities. The god Neptune, guarding the Albufera. Vulcano throwing firecrackers from heaven. And the god Bacchus, inventing the Agua de Valencia."



"Zeus, which makes for great father to all the gods has warned not to make mischief, because they are very naughty."

"The god of antiquity, of Olympus has had enough and looking for a new destination, to Valencia have moved."

"The gods have come to Carmen and walk up to Miguelete and Serranos Towers with the help of a cloud."
