Valencia Travel Information

Spain's third city has a host of attractions to delight the visitor, not least is the famous Fallas festival in March, when bonfires light up the sky and everybody dances in the streets.


The Romans, Visigoths and Arabs all left their marks, so monuments, art and fine architecture, such as the 14th century Serranos Tower, abound but there are also plenty of modern attractions, such as the many recently opended interactive museums, futuristic buildings designed by architect Santiago Calatrava and other facilities of the City of Arts and Sciences.

The focal point for sightseeing and leisure, the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, is near the Gothic Cathedral, dominated by the octagonal bell tower of 'El Miguelete'.

Don't leave Valencia without trying the Paella Valenciana!
