Continuing our travels through Spain, our next stop was Valencia.
Located along the coast, Spain’s third-largest city is renowned for its mild climate, futuristic constructions and paella.
We’ll spent most of our time in Valencia was mostly spent eating, but when we weren’t restaurant hopping or snacking our way through markets, we were exploring the city on foot and the destination quickly rose to the top.
In this Valencia travel guide we’re going to take you guys on a tour of the city and show you some of the things you can do on your visit.
After lunch we were ready to go sightseeing around Valencia. Our first stop: the Silk Exchange.
We went on a walk around the Old Quarter without much of a plan in mind. We saw some street art browsed through a few shops, and randomly stumbled across the narrowest building in Europe – that’s the terracotta.
Since the tower was closed, we decided to stop by Horchateria Santa Catalina to try a drink that you either love or hate: horchata.
This cold milky-looking drink is made with chufas, better known as tiger nuts in English.
Our next attraction was Valencia Cathedral, which is home to a Holy Chalice that has been defended as the true Holy Grail.
If there’s one dish that we had to try in Valencia, it was paella. Many non-Spaniards view paella as Spain’s national dish, but Spaniards will tell you this is a regional Valencian dish.
The City of Arts and Sciences, is a cultural and architectural complex that looks quite spacey and futuristic.
The complex itself is made up of various structures including a domed-glass garden that’s filled with palm trees, the planetarium, an interactive science museum, an aquarium, an opera house, and a plaza designed to hold concerts and sporting events and Turia Park.
But paella wasn’t all we had at the restaurant. We also ordered fideuá.
We had a food adventure in Valencia’s Central Market. Although this is primarily a place to buy your fresh fish, vegetables, meat, and fruit, you can also find some stands that sell smaller snacks and traditional Spanish dishes.
To wrap up our trip to Valencia, we’ll leave you with a few nighttime shots of the city washed aglow. We hope you enjoyed this Valencia travel guide and that it gave you a few ideas of things to do around the city.
This is part of our Travel in Spain video series showcasing Spanish food, Spanish culture and Spanish cuisine.
