Valencia

What you need to know before you go

    Valencia is sheer heaven for architecture enthusiasts. This vibrant Spanish city is renowned for its own distinctive brand of Modernisme, best represented by landmarks like the sprawling Central Market, with its grand glass and iron-beam roof.

    But its must-see buildings span the centuries, from the Gothic grandeur of Valencia Cathedral to the surreal, science fiction structures of the City of Arts and Sciences, which house immersive museums and state-of-the-art performing arts venues. After a hard day's sightseeing, you can retreat to a rustic restaurant for a feast of authentic Valencian paella.
