The city of Valencia welcomes a large number of tourists due to its pleasant climate during most of the year and its excellent culture and gastronomic offerings.
Some places of interest:
Historical Center: The old town of Valencia has a great historical and artistic heritage. Roman, Visigoth and Arabic remains abound. We recommend you visit the Cathedral of Valencia, the Lonja, the Central Market and the Serrano Towers.
Other emblematic buildings well worth exploring are the North Railway Station, the Valencia city council, the Palace of the Marquis of Dos Aguas or the Generalidad Palace, among others.
The City of Art and Science: From its inaugurationthis emblematic cultural institutionhas become a must-see.
Natural surroundings and beaches: TheNatural Park of the Albufera, a large wetland located 10 kilometres south of the city centre is certainly worth visiting. Its two urban beaches; the Arenas and the Malvarrosa, have an extensive and much frequented promenade.
Within the urban area there are many parks and gardens, such as the Turia gardens, the Botanical gardens, the Royal gardens or the Cabecera Park.
Festivities: Valencia is a city of traditions and festivities, the most well known is Fallas. It lasts from 15 till 19 March, although from day one people can daily enjoy the “Mascletá”, a pyrotechnic show that summons a huge crowd of tourists and Valencians.
