Valencia - b.a. photo

“The city is spectacularly beautiful, and the streets are tidy and clean. The streets are wide, and the sidewalks are neat and without potholes. Drivers are also surprisingly polite: if they see someone heading towards the road they stop immediately, even if we’re still some way from the road itself. There isn’t too much impatient horn honking either. Right from the first minute, I felt very comfortable in Valencia.

I divided by exploration of the city so that first I could explore the old town, and then go check out the park in the Turia riverbed, ending at the City of Arts and Sciences – la Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias. I managed to fit one more historical monument into this plan, because it stands right on the border between the old town and the Turia district. The Torres de Serranos used to be part of the city wall, and some argue that they contain the most beautiful Gothic city gates which still exist in Spain. The rugged and extremely tall tower can be accessed by holders of a Valencia Tourist Card at no extra cost. The upper levels also offer good views of the old town, the park, and the sections of the city beyond the green belt.” (2019)
