What to see in Valencia

The city on the banks of the river Turia has a unique beauty which charms all of its visitors, which is why there is nothing better than choosing to stay in hotels in Valencia to discover it in depth.

Its geographical location made the city a key maritime trading point, which is why different cultures have lived in it throughout its history, a history which you can discover for yourself in the Almoina Archaeological Centre. Another witness of its past is the cathedral, which was built on a site where there used to be a mosque and a Roman temple, today known for its popular bell tower which locals call El Miguelete. Also, every Thursday at its Apostles Gate you can witness the Water Tribunal, an independent legal institution which has been delivering justice in matters related to irrigation water since 1239 AD.

In terms of civil architecture, the most famous monuments are the Serranos Towers, the Quart Towers, medieval gates which used to be part of the old city walls and, most importantly, the Silk Exchange, a Gothic-style building declared a World Heritage Site with its stunning Columns Room.

Another popular attraction is the Palace of the Marquis of Dos Aguas and its spectacular facade with the image of the Virgin of El Rosario. Inside this stately home you can find many Rococo ornaments from the Fifteenth century and it is currently the home of the González Martí National Museum of Ceramics and Decorative Arts.

On the other hand, if you visit Valencia in spring you can enjoy its most famous festival, Las Fallas, declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity which takes place on March 15-19. The festival starts with the plantà, which is the placing on the streets of the large figures filled with social critique, and is followed by the mascletás (large firework and firecracker displays) and offerings to the virgin, finishing with the cremà, which is when all the figures are set on fire.

Lastly, don’t miss out on its delicious gastronomy, which includes exquisite world-famous dishes like paella.

What to do in Valencia

A hotel in the city of Valencia is the ideal place to enjoy the local atmosphere, mild climate and fantastic beaches of fine sand and clear water such as La Malvarrosa, Las Arenas, El Pinedo and El Saler, where you can also practice many water sports including snorkelling, sailing, jet skiing, kitesurfing, surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing or renting a boat.

In fact, its marina is one of the best in the whole of Europe and proof of this is that it has hosted international events such as the Volvo Ocean Race or the America’s Cup, which attract many sporting professionals, media and fans to search for hotels in Valencia to enjoy the events in person.

Another way of discovering the old town, known as Ciutat Vella, is through the Silk Route. In the Fifteenth century, Valencia was one of the main focal points of silk commerce with China, leaving behind a rich heritage which goes from Paseo Velluters to the Silk Museum and, of course, the Silk Exchange.

Nevertheless, Valencia is synonymous with modernity, events and business thanks to the City of Arts and Sciences, a stunning architectural complex designed by Santiago Calatrava made up of different buildings, which include the Oceanographic, the largest aquarium in Europe; the Hemispheric, an IMAX cinema, Umbracle, a landscaped viewpoint; the Reina Sofía Arts Palace, the Príncipe Felipe Museum of Science, inspired by a dinosaur’s skeleton; and the Agora, a multifunctional space.

In terms of nature, another reason to choose a hotel in Valencia is that the city is just 15 minutes away from Albufera Natural Park, one of the most important wetlands in the whole of Spain located by the coast, home to many different aquatic bird species, a lot of which are endangered.
