Valencia, the third largest city in Spain, is a delicious combination of modern architecture and medieval sanctuary! A mixture of old and new buildings, giving it an extraordinary, unique feeling. These are the reasons that will make you want to visit it!!!

From medieval castles to modern and art deco aesthetic architectures, from small shops to large commercial and its strong card of quality choices in food and entertainment, Valencia is a city that has it all!

Nevertheless, it is a fact that Valencia is a somewhat unjust city. It certainly does not "figure" in the first - or even in the second - choices of travellers wishing to visit Spain, since it has to compete with the famous Barcelona, ​​the stately Madrid and magical Andalusia. Nevertheless, it is an exciting city, which pleasantly surprises anyone who chooses to dedicate the right time to it.

The Parks
Did you know that Valencia has the Largest Urban Park in all of Europe? The famous Jardins del Turia Park, formerly a river, which was moved south of Valencia due to its overflow in 1957, is just one of the five beautiful and well-organized parks in the city. A unique amusement park full of lakes, playgrounds and sports facilities, hiking trails, and remarkable natural beauty has made it one of the most attractive attractions in Valencia. What makes it unique is that each part has its own theme. This makes it ideal for evening trips, cycling, yoga classes, children's activities, skateboarding and relaxing moments in a natural "urban oasis".

The Medieval Sanctuary Of The City
Built on an ancient Roman temple and a former Jurassic Temple, Valencia Cathedral is a patchwork of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. In fact, it is said that the Holy Grail is there! Yes! The same one that existed at the Last Supper! Right next door, there is a royal church adorned with majestic frescoes and the Miguelete Tower, from which you can enjoy the magnificent view of the city. Torres de Serranos and Torres de Quart, Valencia's two medieval gates, can also enjoy panoramic views.

Walk In The Central Market
The visit to the Central Market, or the city's central market, is a special gastronomic experience and a journey to the senses, full of colours and authentic aromas of the city! The market is housed in an impressive, art nouveau building, which isn't the only reason to visit.

Colourful fruits and vegetables bearing the true aroma of the Mediterranean are gathered on the impressive stalls. Countless rows of traditional jamon are waiting to be tasted. The scents of freshly baked bread are delicious and delicious! The market size is quite large - with more than 1,000 counters - so we recommend that you walk around fearlessly and do not hesitate to try a little of everything!

A Walk On The Impressive Beaches Of Valencia
A city that is "bathed" by the sun for most of the year could not help but have a highly developed coastal area! Valencia has many beaches along its coastline, both organized and more "Western", and is an ideal destination for those who want to combine holidays in a modern city and nearby summer excursions by the sea!

Must visit the beach "Las Arenas" which has taken its name from the vast golden water expanse. It is only two kilometres from the city centre and is easily accessible by public transport. It is organized while offering a variety of activities and snack bars, without missing the quietest places for those who want to relax away from the crowds! Of course, we suggest you visit all these fantastic beaches, in your own vehicle, because the route is absolutely magical. If you do not own a vehicle, you can choose a rental vehicle from the company Enjoy Travel, which offers you a huge range of vehicles at fantastic and affordable prices for every Spanish city.

So, is Valencia on your 2022 travel list?
