Valencia Travel Guide

by our Spain expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyAn important Mediterranean port since Roman times, Valencia offers a wonderful blend of traditional Spain with beach/sunshine lazing – overlaid with one of the most stimulating arts centres imaginable. Spain’s third largest city has an old quarter, the Barrio del Carmen, full of Moorish and even Roman streets. The port is the (still-hoped-for) venue of the next America’s Cup contest and is straddled by many clean and safe beaches. The futuristic City of Arts and Sciences complex, with its highly modernistic half-domed buildings, is stunning. A visit to Valencia at any time is rewarding but perhaps the most exciting event is Las Fallas (mid-March), the San José fiesta, with Rio-style colorful processions, bonfires and fireworks, plus giant street-cooked paellas – Valencia’s ‘signature dish’.
