DESTINATION & TOURISM

Key Facts, International Travel, and Things to Do

Background World
Background

The small city of Valencia is located in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula, on the Costa del Azahar. The city is renowned for the City of Arts and Sciences, designed by local architect Santiago Calatrava, but also boasts beautiful beaches, excellent shopping and historic architect. Originally a gated city, Valencia still has remnants of its past, with the historic city gate, Torres de Serranos still standing in the north of the historic city.

Valencia has a population of more than 800,000 inhabitants, and the Port of Valencia is the fifth busiest container port in Europe. The Turia Gardens run around the historic city. This park was originally a river, that ran through the city. However, after severe flooding the river was drained. The fertile soil quickly lead to the development of a lush garden, which has now been transformed into a cultural hub.

Traditional Spanish dish Paella originates from the Albufera National Park, just south of of the city, where Paella rice is grown in the wetlands. Other traditional Spanish food can be purchased and consumed from the Central Market in the city centre. Valencia is also home to one of the few remaining Bull Rings in Spain, which still hosts live events throughout the year.

This gothic style cathedral has the famous Micalet tower and sits on the beautiful Plaza de La Reina, where you can relax and enjoy a local delicacy known as Orchata.

The edge of the historic centre is marked by the Torres de Serranos, which are the old city gates. Each evening at 11pm, these gates would be locked, and anyone unlucky enough to miss the curfew would be stuck outside the gates until they opened again in the morning.
