HIGHLIGHTS

 

Barrio del Carmen

Part of the historic city centre, this millenary quarter rises among two walls: a Muslim wall dating back from the 11th century, and a Christian one built in the 14th century.

Wander the streets and admire its rich historic legacy; its stunning medieval monuments will take you back in time to Valencia's rambling past.

Lonja de la Seda (silk exchange)

Considered a gem of Gothic art, the silk exchange in Valencia is one of the most beautiful examples of civil Gothic architecture.

This historic building features la Torre (the Tower), la Sala del Consulado del Mar (the Hall of the Consulate of the Sea), el Patio de los Naranjos (the Orange Tree Courtyard), and el Salón de las Columnas (the Hall of Columns).

The City of Arts and Sciences

Futuristic and original work by architects Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela, the City of Arts and Sciences is a unique complex devoted to leisure and culture and intended to promote scientific and cultural knowledge.

This avant-garde complex houses the Hemisfèric (IMAX movie theatre), the Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe, the Oceanogràfic (the largest aquarium in Europe), and the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía, among others.
