Bathed by the Mediterranean sea and boasting a mild, sunny climate, Valencia is also one of the most vibrant cities in Europe. Culture and deep-rooted traditions combine with modern architecture and a wide range of top quality hotels and shops, plus a nightlife second to none.
The birthplace of paella offers a rich gastronomy with luscious local wines and mouth-watering dishes using the best of the fresh produce from the sea and the surrounding huerta. You will find them in a myriad of restaurants ranging from traditional tapas bars to Michelin-starred establishments.
A walk around its compact historic centre unveils magnificent buildings like the Gothic Silk Exchange (La Lonja), the Cathedral or the lively Central Market and Colon Market, jewels of Modernist art. New cultural hubs like Bombas Gens or Veles e Vents by its modern Marina complement the city’s ample offering of museums, art galleries and music venues.
The nine kilometres of gardens along the former Turia riverbed provide a respite from city life and a great place to relax or practice sports. Here, the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences stuns visitors with some of the most spectacular architecture in the world.
The city hosts many international sporting events every year, such as the Valencia Marathon or the Moto GP, and its boisterous festivals such as Las Fallas in March (declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO) attract millions of tourist from around the world.
With all this and much more on offer, Valencia is a true gem waiting to be discovered.
