About Valencia


Valencia, the land of flowers and fallas, is one of the largest and most important cities in Spain, and one of the liveliest.

The city of Valencia has an interesting contrast between its monumental heritage (La Lonja, El Micalet de la Seu, Las Torres de Serranos and Quart...), magnificent beaches, a wide range of cultural, gastronomic and leisure tourism. Being located on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, one finds the beaches in the very heart of the city.

Strolling through its streets and enjoying the abundant possibilities that the capital offers is something for which the hours can run without realizing it. If after that, one gets an appetite, then it is time to try the most famous dish in Spain exactly where it was born, the Paella Valenciana.

In recent years Valencia has won, on its own merits, the recognition as European and international capital of culture. New avenues have been opened, new museums and cultural centers have been inaugurated, the Historic Center has been reactivated, music and congress palaces have been built, the gaze has been turned to the Mediterranean with the promenade and the balcony to the sea, it has opted for the future and technology in the City of Arts and Sciences.
