Valencia is officially one of Spain’s great cities with plenty to offer. It gets 300 days of sunshine and is proud to be a place that really knows how to party! The city has space age architecture and baroque districts giving it a mixture of the new and old. The modern part of the city owes much to its famous architect Santiago Calatrava who designed “The City of Arts and Sciences”.
Valencian gastronomy is varied, natural and traditional. The fruit and vegetables of this fertile land, fresh fish and abundant seafood provide the main ingredients of an exquisite Mediterranean cuisine. Rice is central to the local diet and is home to the paella. Another speciality is the “horchata”, a drink made from crushed tiger nuts mixed with sugar and water.
