Calle Lonja, 2, 46001 Valencia, Spain
This lovely gothic hall was once a major mercantile hotspot. So much so the UNESCO named it a world heritage site.

The architecture is unusual, featuring gargoyles, lovely stained glass windows, a beautiful central courtyard, twisted columns and coffered ceilings. Visit for the sheer atmosphere.

Plaza Almoina, s/n, 46003 Valencia, Spain
10:00 am - 06:30 pm
This eleventh century cathedral is essentially Gothic, but melds multiple influences into its structure, a result of a long period of construction and expansion. It’s quite important to Christianity in general, seeing how it houses what is purportedly the chalice from the Last Supper (the true Holy Grail).
It was the official chalice for many...

Plaza Ciudad de Brujas, s/n, 46001 Valencia, Spain
08:00 am - 02:30 pm
Among the famous markets of the world, this one doesn’t get nearly as much fame as it ought to. It’s one of Europe’s oldest markets, specialising mainly in foodstuffs and restaurants. Not knowing any Spanish isn’t going to be a problem; the vendors are all very helpful.
Beef, fish, fruit, Jamon, cheese… it’s all...

Calle del Poeta Querol, 2, 46002 Valencia, Spain
10:00 am - 08:00 pm
This beautiful building houses a ceramic museum. Yes, it’s a strange combination, but that’s part of the charm. Those not quite interested in pottery will be able to just wander about the place taking in the lavishness of the interiors.It was a royal palace after all. All in all, there isn’t much to see here, but take an hour.

This is only one of the dozen gates that led into Old Valencia. It’s one of Valencia’s best-preserved monuments. The best time to visit would be in the morning.

This Gothic tower, built in the thirteenth century, derives its name from the giant bell (Miguel) that resides within it. 207 steps spiralling up to the top of the tower will lead you to some terrific views of Valencia’s rooftops, old gates and many squares. Try and get there as the bell chimes; it’s loud and quite and experience; don&r...

This is the heart and soul of Valencia, it’s historical and cultural influences blending together with the modern in a series of quaint and beautiful neighbourhood.

The museum is worth visiting for two things: its preservation of Valencia’s cultural heritage, and the beautiful palace within which it resides. Luca Giordano, Bartolommeo Esteban Murillo and Juan Valdes Leal are only a number of Valencia’s favored painters showcased here. Other than that, there’s a whole collection sculptures and...
