If you fancy a trip to Spain, but want to avoid the hordes of tourists pouring into Barcelona and Seville, a holiday to Valencia could be for you. Home to sun, sea, sand and some of the country’s very best food and drink – a few days in this gorgeous city is sure to rejuvenate. Here are the best things to do while you’re in town.
The City of Arts and Sciences
It may have taken nine years to complete, cost €900 million, and have driven Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava out of his home town but Valencia’s City of Arts and Sciences is an architectural triumph and an absolute must-see. Catch a concert at the Palau de les Arts, go stargazing at Hemisfèric, get acquainted with more than 500 marine species at Oceanogràfic, or expand your scientific knowledge at the Museo de las Ciencias Princípe Felipe.
