The Valencia area guide

Sights and attractions

A vibrant cultural scene, sunny beaches and world-class dining are a few of the reasons why Valencia is one of the most pleasant cities in Spain. It is the third largest city in the country, just after Barcelona and Madrid, yet lacks the same scale of tourism and so there is more space with which to move around when sampling Valencia’s art, culture and nightlife.

The city has undergone massive regeneration in recent years, adding intriguing contemporary architecture to the existing blend of Gothic, Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings. Part of this regeneration includes the redirection of the Turia River, which was drained and transformed into a green public park. The new park culminates in the futuristic Santiago Calatrava-designed City of Arts and Sciences complex. This Capital of the Old Kingdom of Valencia offers the laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle along with a modern sensibility.

Valencia’s Mediterranean setting means that you’ll find pristine city beaches located just outside of the old city centre. Playa de Malvarrosa and Playa de Levante are situated north of the port and are easily accessible by public transport.

There’s a colourful art and cultural scene in Valencia, and those with an eye for Spanish art won’t want to miss a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, which features works from El Greco and other masters. The Old Cathedral features an impressive collection of artworks, including paintings by Goya. Don’t miss a trip up to the top of the bell tower, where you can admire expansive views of the city.

The innovative City of Arts and Sciences is now one of the city’s most important attractions, with sleek, futuristic white curved buildings. Within this modern complex, you’ll find a science museum, opera house, planetarium, and IMAX cinema. Animal lovers can visit the complex’s oceanographic marine park, which is the largest of its kind in Europe, or pay a visit to the lush habitats of the city’s Bioparc zoo.

Restaurants and cafes

Valencia is the birthplace of paella, one of the most beloved Spanish dishes. You can sample it in various incarnations throughout the city’s restaurants and cafes, but one of the best is La Pepica. Frequented by Ernest Hemingway, this laid-back restaurant offers sea views and fragrant platters of paella.

For an upscale dining experience, visit Michelin-starred Camarena. Headed by celebrity chef Ricard Camarena, it’s known for its creative take on the traditional Mediterranean diet. La Lluna offers vegetarian cuisine in stylish surroundings while Bodega Casa Montana is another seaside restaurant known for its locally sourced ingredients and creative tapas.

Venture a bit out of the city centre for the relaxing dining experience at Restaurante Alacena, which offers a tranquil terrace and extensive wine list.

Shops

From traditional markets to luxurious designer boutiques, Valencia’s shopping is second to none. Some locally made products that the city is known for include handcrafted shoes, ceramics and embroidery. Take a stroll down pedestrian streets like Calle don Juan de Austria and you’ll be able to pick up these local artisan products.

The city’s Central Market is a must-visit destination for the experience and photo opportunities alone, featuring over 1,000 stalls filled to the brim with colourful seasonal produce. There’s also a Sunday flea market in Plaza Redonda offering antique and off-the-wall treasures.

Shopping malls include El Saler Centro Comercial, which offers well-known fashion retailers like Zara as well as a Carrefour supermarket. For more designer shops, visit Aqua Multiespacio on Calle Menorca.

Travel

The main airport is located just 9km from the city centre, easily accessible by bus, metro or taxi. Once in the city, the Valencia Metro provides convenient service throughout the city. The Metro provides service to city beaches like Playa de la Malvarrosa. The central Estació del Nord connects Valencia with Madrid, Barcelona and other regional destinations.
