Traveling around Spain, third stop: Comunidad Valenciana

Napisany przez , 1 grudnia 2019

Valencia is unique for different reasons.

Valencia is one of those destinations that never disappoints. And, whatever the time of the year, it always gives you good reasons to come and enjoy it.

Why travel to Valencia?

 

FOR ITS 300 SUNNY DAYS

Valencia rewards the visitor with 300 sunny days per year and an average annual temperature of almost 18º. A perfect climate to discover the city walking under the intense blue sky and making the occasional stop on a terrace in the sun. Such a simple plan that you will love.

FOR ITS MEDITERRANEAN GASTRONOMY

Although paella is an international dish, it is very likely that you have never tried one as good as here. So do not leave without asking for an authentic Valencian paella and without discovering all that our cuisine offers: rice in all its combinations, traditional fish and seafood stews, excellent wines, horchata (with fartons for dipping, of course) and spectacular citrus . Is your mouth watering just by reading it? Don’t miss the Valencia Cuina Oberta Restaurant Week, the most important gastronomic event in the city.

FOR THE BEACHES

What more could you ask of a city with 300 sunny days? Beaches, of course, and with blue flags to make it even better! As you read it, in Valencia you have 7 kilometers of beaches to choose between the fun of urban beaches, with all the services and a great atmosphere, or the tranquility of the wild beaches of the Albufera Natural Park.

 

FOR ITS HOLIDAYS AND TRADITIONS

Noise, music, gunpowder, color and ingenuity are the protagonists of our parties. And in Valencia there is always something to celebrate! From March 15 to 19, the city overturns with the celebration of the Fallas (declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO), although there are other parties that you should not miss either: Holy Week Marinera, the transfer of the Virgin of the Homeless, the Valencian Corpus and the July Fair. Write it all on your agenda!

FOR ITS GREEN SPACES

Valencia is full of surprises, like the one you will take when you look out over the river that crosses the city and discover that it is a lush garden of 9 kilometers dedicated to leisure and sports. The old channel of the Turia River is a meeting point for Valencians and tourists who enjoy it from morning to night. Another of our most representative and interesting natural spaces is the Albufera Natural Park, which is only 10 km from the center and gives you a spectacular sunset that is enjoyed even more with a boat ride.

FOR ITS 2000 YEARS OF HISTORY

Founded the year 138 BC by the Romans, Valencia is a superposition of Roman, Visigothic, Muslim and medieval cultures. Proof of this are monuments as representative as La Lonja de la Seda (declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site), La Almoina, Las Torres de Serrano and de Quart or the Cathedral. Beyond the architectural, the Water Tribunal, founded in the year 1000 and recognized by Unesco as Intangible Heritage of Humanity, is a vestige of the past that can be attended every Thursday at 12:00 under the Gate of the Apostles of the Cathedral of Valencia.

FOR BEING A VANGUARD SYMBOL

Valencia is a city in continuous evolution. A city that boasts its historical past but dares with the great buildings of the 21st century. If you are interested in architecture, pay special attention to the City of Arts and Sciences of Santiago Calatrava, the Norman Foster Conference Center and the Veles e Vents building by David Chipperfield. Other avant-garde spaces that you should visit are the MUVIM, the Valencia Fair, the Palau de la Música or the IVAM.

 FOR ITS SINGULAR CORNERS

Valencia is much more than what comes in the guides. So take your camera and keep your eyes wide open to discover corners such as the Round Square, the Church of Santa Catalina, whose square is the narrowest building in Europe, the frescoes of the church of St. Nicholas, the clock that presides the Church of the Santos Juanes, the baptismal font of San Vicente in the parish of San Esteban or the caiman that is on the door of the Church of the Patriarch. Surely your photos succeed on Instagram!
