Paella y Corrida!
The port city of Valencia lies on Spain’s southeastern coast, on the Mediterranean Sea. It’s known for its City of Arts and Sciences, with futuristic structures.
Valencia also has several beaches, including some within nearby Albufera Park, a wetlands reserve with a lake and walking trails.
Established in Roman times, Valencia has buildings dating back hundreds of years, including medieval city gate the Serranos Towers.
In the medieval center, Valencia Cathedral is home to a 1st-century holy chalice and the octagonal Miguelete bell tower. The Turia Gardens form a green ribbon linking the Bioparc Zoo with the port and Malvarrosa Beach. The Museum of Fine Arts houses works by El Greco and Goya.
