Essential Places that you can not miss in Valencia

 

The city of Arts and Sciencies

               

Central Market

           

Catedral y plaza de la virgen

An impressive city that can be enjoyed both inside and out, whether by watching an opera or 3D IMAX film, or visiting the interactive museum or the largest aquarium in Europe.

             

 

Valencian cuisine has many things to boast about and you can find them all at the Central Market, the biggest market with fresh produce in Europe full of Mediterranean flavours and aromas.

           

The Cathedral is a beautiful mixture of Romanesque, Baroque and Gothic styles. The Holy Chalice is preserved inside the Cathedral and if you go up the 207 steps of the Miguelete tower you will be able to enjoy a 360º view of the city.

 

 

 

           

 

                                 

Silk Exchange

               

Valencia Marina and beaches

           

Albufera Natural Park

This Valencian Gothic-style civil building was declared a World Heritage Site in 1996 by UNESCO and it is a surprising and essential visit when in Valencia.

               

Enjoy kilometres and kilometres of beaches with blue flags. Relax in front of the sea from any of the many restaurants at the Marina or from the Veles e Vents building.

           

Pure nature, dreamy sunsets, boat rides and completely switching off for a while. Like an oasis surrounded by rice fields and forests. We are obviously talking about La Albufera in Valencia, the place where paella was invented.

 

 

 

           

 

                                 

El Carmen neightbourhood and its palaces

Forget following maps and explore the maze of cobbled streets in the thousand-year-old neighbourhood that arose within Muslim and Christian walls.  You will find medieval buildings, palaces, frescoes and restaurants that you will not be able to resist. 

               

There are 34 museums in the city: From the second largest picture gallery in Spain, the Museum of Fine Arts of Valencia, to modern art at IVAM, as well as the National Ceramics Museum, the Falla Museum, the Centre del Carme or the Bomba Gens Art Centre.
