The pleasures of Valencia

Valencia is home to over 40 museums, showcasing everything from Concha Piquer to Silence (in the General Cemetery). The Almoina and the Almudín, both in the city centre, are sure to attract your attention and are a must for history buffs.

When the sun is about to set, taking a walk down the banks of the Turia River is a pure pleasure. The riverbed is now dry since the river was redirected to prevent flooding, but it is home to numerous parks and green areas that delight visitors. This walk leads to the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, an impressive architectural complex, housing its own opera palace and oceanographic museum filled with glass tunnels that submerge us in marine life.

At night time, a festive atmosphere fills the city, both in the centre and on the outskirts. In the port area, we find the High Cube bar (in the Veles e Vents building). The docks and old trading areas are now home to bars such as Bodega La Pascuala, on Carrer Eugenia Viñes, an unassuming establishment that’s highly popular.

In the Cabanyal neighbourhood, there are some welcoming spots where it is possible to enjoy the nightlife and music, such as No Hay Nada Mejor Que 27 Amigos, Calle Reina, where you can listen to jazz, flamenco and blues while enjoying refreshments at affordable prices.
