Good to know
- Central Market
- Cathedral, Miguelete
- City of Arts and Sciences
- We will head off to explore Valencia, currently one of the most densely populated cities in Spain. It is eternally suspended between the past and the future, between tradition and modernity, where Gothic, Baroque and old fishing districts go hand in hand with the futuristic part of the city.
- In front of the Lonja lies the brightly-coloured Central Market where local sellers display their vegetables, spices, fish and the famous Serrano ham every day in an elegant, liberty-style building.
- The cathedral bridges the gap between the centuries perfectly. The original central part of the church dates back to the 13th century but the construction creates the perfect balance of Roman, Gothic and Spanish Baroque styles, topped off with the extremely tall, octagonal Gothic bell tower known as Miguelete as it is dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel.
- The City of Arts and Sciences is a completely unique complex dedicated to science, technology, nature and art. Its most symbolic construction, the Hemisfèric, spans around 13,000 square metres and watches us with its huge scrutinising eye, which has an even more intense effect thanks to the reflection from the water at its base. Inside this futuristic museum, we will find countless pieces of evidence of how art and science, teaching and interactive technology have been able to improve life for humans.
