Holidays to Valencia, the city of art and culture
Embrace the city of arts and sciences
The tongue twisting name, the City of Arts and Sciences, refers to a group of six futuristic buildings designed by local architects Félix Candela and Santiago Calatrava. The buildings are comprised of a science museum, planetarium, IMAX cinema, marine park and opera house, all housed in an extraordinary sculptural space. The museum itself incorporates a fun design and the Oceanogràfic is the largest and most elegant aquarium in the whole of Europe, containing more than 45,000 different species.
Take a trip to the beach
The beaches of Valencia are wide and long, with clean, soft sand, perfect for a dip in the sea or to relax by the water. The most popular beach for visitors is La Malvarrosa, which begins at the port area and is split into different sections such as the Playa Cabanyal and Playa las Arenas. Both eventually stretch beyond to the Playa de Patacona.
Visit the Turia Gardens
In a previous time, the wide and powerful Turia River bisected the city. This was up until the 1950s when it was then diverted after flooding. The river bed is now a beautiful park where you can take a leisurely walk, run or even ride a bike. It's the perfect place to relax and is surrounded by bars and cafes along the way to stop and grab a bite to eat or drink.
Visit the central market
The central market of Valencia is beautifully unique and well worth a visit. Not only is it housed in an architecturally modernist building, it's also somewhere where visitors get a closer insight into the normal daily life of the local Valencian people. The market is divided into a variety of sections of foods and is a good place to pick up some ingredients for a picnic in the park.
