Things to do in Valencia
There’s so much to see on Valencia holidays. The striking architecture in Valencia City adds character to the region and maintains old town charm. Gothic and renaissance structures sit alongside art nouveau buildings, creating a striking landscape. Valencia is one of the few places in the world that claims to host the Holy Grail, the cup Jesus drank from at the last supper. Such claims are overshadowed by the cathedral containing the cup, as the intricate design sits majestically in the city. Other historical must-sees are the spectacular gardens of Turia, the Plaza de Ayuntamento, and the Plaza de la Virgin.
For something more modern, the city of arts and sciences is as unmissable as it is unforgettable. You’ll have to see this city within a city to believe it! Its architecture is super-futuristic and inspired by animal skeletons, and inside you’ll find education and entertainment like nowhere else in Europe. There’s plenty in Valencia which will transport you to the past, but this will take you to the future.
The Valencia coast is lined with amazing beaches welcoming those in search of solitude away from the inner city and nearby tourist areas such as Madrid. Experience a true sense of solitude, as bars and cafés are sparse, leaving you to enjoy the natural surroundings inclusive of golden sand and glistening seas offered over the course of Valencia holidays.
A trip to Valencia means you get the best of both a city holiday and a beach getaway; you’ll find the beaches of Las Arenas, Malvarrosa and El Cabañal just 15 minutes away from the city centre. These beaches are all Blue Flag beaches, having won certifications such as the Q for Tourist Quality. Further afield, Valencia’s wildest beaches are just 10km away from the city, offering stretches of wonderfully preserved natural beauty. Valencia’s beaches aren’t just for laying on the sand and soaking up the sun, though they are ideal for sunbathing! There are also volleyball courts, pedal boats, fitness areas and catamarans to be enjoyed.
