THE MARKET SQUARE AND THE SILK EXCHANGE

Enjoy one of Europe’s best markets, the Mercado Central, inside a jewel of pre-modernist architecture, and enter one of the most representative examples of lay, Gothic architecture in Europe, la Lonja de la Seda (the Silk Exchange), declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Don’t miss the church of Los Santos Juanes nearby.

PLAZA DE LA VIRGEN AND THE CATHEDRAL

221 centuries of history in the heart of the city, where you can discover heritage treasures such as Valencia Cathedral, the Miguelete tower, the Basílica of the Virgin or the Almoina Roman remains. On Thursdays at 12:00 the Tribunal de las Aguas (Water Court) meets, and has been declared an Intangible world heritage site by UNESCO.

THE CARMEN DISTRICT AND ITS PALACES

The thousand year old city grew between two walls, one Muslim and one Christian. A stroll along its maze of cobblestoned streets full of medieval buildings transports us to other historical epochs. Enter the palaces, or pass through the medieval town gates; the Torres de Quart and the Torres de Serranos, and wander through the timeless streets.

MARINA AND BEACHES OF VALENCIA

The Marina is a reference point in the city, not only because of the events organised there, but also because of its special buildings. There you’ll find the 19thC ‘Tinglado’, decorative dock-side buildings for storing goods, the clock building as well as Veles e Vents (sails and winds), an emblematic building of the new Marina. Among the attractions are shops, terraces and restaurants with marvellous views. There’s also a children’s park, the central floating mooring walkway with their luxury yachts, and the north and south marinas with a plethora of boats.
A short distance away are the beaches of El Cabanyal (Las Arenas) and the Malvarrosa, with its attractive promenade. We recommend that you try a delicious paella in one of the restaurants there, or have a drink in one of the attractive bars. For those who prefer Wilder beaches, we suggest the beach at El Saler, next to the Natural Park of the Albufera lake.

NATURAL PARKS

THE ALBUFERA NATURAL PARK

The Albufera Natural Park is an area of unspoilt nature where the only sounds to be heard are the birdsong and the water. This protected area lies a mere 10 kilometres from the city. To visit it is to understand the passion of the Valencian people for nature and to discover the origins of Valencian gastronomy.

ROUTES AROUND THE FRUIT AND VEGETABLE FIELDS OF VALENCIA

The scenary all around Alboraya is the ‘Huerta,’ a market garden of small cultivated fields. The fertile land, the climate and the irrigation system, along with the efforts of Man, have created a beautiful, varied landscape. The farmers take great care opf their land, which forms a patchwork of colours. We can enjoy the Huerta through our eyes and noses, with varied and unexpected scents.
Routes of the area have been created for your pleasure. Consult maps at:

THE PUIG MONASTERY: A TRIP TO THE MEDIEVAL

A few kilometres to the north of Valencia, the Puig Monastery transports us into the medieval world and the conquest of Valencia by King Jaume I. The Royal Hall, a copy of the King’s sword, the ceramic room; these are some of the attractions to be found during guided tours organised by the Tourist Office.

Gastronomy

Within the rich and varied gastronomy that you can find in Valencia, you can’t miss the opportunity to taste its typical dish par excellence: paella.
As a land of rice, it’s possible to delight yourself with other typical rices such as “arroz al horno” (baked), “arroz a banda” (with fish), “arroz negro” (with squid in its ink), “arròs amb fesols i naps” (a kind of rice soup with beans and turnips or “fideuá” (which replaces rice with noodles). Another typical product of the land is the “horchata”, refreshing drink made from the tiger nut. This one only grows in lands prepared for it, reason why it’s a product totally native and with denomination of origin. It’s common to take it accompanied by “fartons” and you choose if you prefer it hailed, mixed or liquid.

Cycling

If you are one of the people that enjoys cycling, Valencia is undoubtedly the perfect place for it. Adapted to the tourism cycle, Valencia is what we could call a “Bike Friendly” city due to its extension, flat terrain with little slopes and its bicycle lanes that connects all the districts of the city with more than 120 km. In addition, the city belongs to Network of Cities for the Bicycle, its traffic in the urban center is limited to 30 km/h and has the old Turia river bed, a garden that crosses the urban nucleus and allows to visit it by bike, without hurry and enjoying a mild climate all year round.
