Foreign currency Spanish autonomous bonds

I was looking through the bond screener the other day, and it was interesting to see adventures of the Spanish autonomous regions into the international bond market.

  Maturity Yield to Maturity Currency ISIN
GENERALITAT DE VALENCIA 22.02.2013 16.57% CHF CH0024125541
GENERALITAT DE VALENCIA 24.08.2012 13.64% CHF CH0038364987
