Valencia, being the third-largest city in Spain, is not a big, exhausting megapolis – it’s cozy and comfortable. It has everything: the relaxed atmosphere of a coastal city with a 5 km promenade and wide sandy beaches, the noise of the city center, the remarkable architecture of the historic downtown, cultural and educational events, concerts and exhibitions, universities, and activities for children.
1. City of the Arts and Sciences: A mesmerizing collection of futuristic buildings, surrounded by reflective pools, houses cultural hubs and attractions like L’Hemisfèric, an IMAX cinema and planetarium, and the awe-inspiring L’Umbracle. Oceanogràfic, also located in the City of the Arts and Sciences, is the biggest aquarium in Europe. This place faithfully reproduces the most important marine ecosystems.
2. Valencia Cathedral: A central cathedral from the 13th century, it has witnessed various architectural modifications. It’s home for the Holy Grail, used by Jesus during the Last Supper. Interestingly, the Vatican officially recognized the genuineness of the Grail. Apart from visiting the Cathedral, there’s also a museum inside the church, as archeological excavations are still on, with artifacts from the early Roman period
3. The Church of San Nicolás de Bari and San Pedro Mártir :Often referred to as the ‘Valencian Sistine Chapel’ the church is among the earliest Christian churches in Valencia. Initially established after Jaume I’s reconquest, it underwent Gothic transformations led by the Borja family. Later, its interiors were adorned with Baroque designs, featuring frescoes showcasing the lives of Saint Nicholas and Saint Peter Martyr.
4. Malvarrosa Beach: Malvarrosa’s wide sandy beach offers outdoor sports just 200 meters from the tennis club. The long promenade alongside the beach is lined with inviting restaurants.
5. The Cabanyal neighborhood: El Cabanyal used to be a fisherman’s village and not a very safe neighborhood. However, it is changing its image thanks to the increasing number of expatriates who chose this place for living. Cabnyal maintains its architectural mix, from colorful fishing houses to modern cottages. The area has a distinct social vibe rarely found in big cities. Over the last five years, Cabanyal has also become a culinary hotspot with numerous cafes, gastro bars, and restaurants.
