The city

Valencia, the capital of its province and the third largest city in Spain, is perfectly located on the east coast with a Mediterranean climate and culturally so much to offer.

This up and coming cosmopolitan city is where Paella was born, and is home to one of the most famous Spanish festivals, Las Fallas, which takes place mid March. Valencia is also known for its architecture being a sharp contrast of old and new, as it has Roman roots yet some of the most spectacularly modern buildings.

The historical centre is full of monuments and museums, some of which include a gothic Cistercian Cathedral, where the Holy Grail was said to be housed since the 15th century, and the Plaza de Ayuntamiento which is considered to be the buzzing centre of the city. Another impressive area of this city is the market, once famous for its silk merchants.

The new Central Market is now one of the largest in Europe. The Valencian coast is spectacular, with its sandy beaches and mountainous backdrop, there is plenty to explore in the region, outside this magnificent city.
