Spain's Favorite Vacation Getaway
For tourists planning their next vacation.
No other city in Spain has gone through such massive expansion and re-construction as Valencia! Although not yet discovered by American tourists, it has long been a favorite of Spaniards, savvy European travelers and sun-worshippers from all the over the Continent. Valencia is considered one of Spain’s most cultured destinations. And now with its breathtaking new architecture, this is truer than ever before. And when it comes to gastronomy, Valencia can hold its own with any other part of Spain. It was in Valencia, that ‘Paella’ originated.
The moment you pass through the Torres de Serranos (medieval gateway), you’ll know you’re in a special city. Everywhere you look, you see a blending of architectural styles from Moorish to Medieval to a brave, new, post Moderne. Sometimes you’ll find it all in same building. A perfect example is the Cathedral of Valencia (1262), featuring Romanesque, Baroque, and Gothic architectural styles.
From the gargoyles of La Lonja, an exquisite Gothic Hall (1482) to the avant-garde La Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias designed by Valencia’s own, Santiago Calatrava, you’ll discover a range of architecture found nowhere else.
Valencia’s great traditional southern hospitality remains as welcoming as ever. Valencianos are even more eager to show off their new city, with many wonderful celebrations throughout the year. But Valencia is more than a city. It’s one of Spain’s most picturesque regions, with history dating back to 100,000 B.C. and numerous prehistoric sites.
When you consider its year round gentle climate, endless sunshine and abundance of outdoor sports and activities, it’s no accident that Valencia hosted the Americas Cup!
