Destination of the Week -Valencia

Valencia

If Majorca is too crowded and Seville too hot, but you’re still craving hot summer days or mild winter nights, then make Valencia your next travel destination! The birthplace of paella, and 'City of Arts and Sciences' Valencia has undergone quite a redevelopment in the past 10 years making it a favorable destination for travelers of all kinds. From ancient Roman architecture, to modern museums with everything in between, Valencia has it all. Visit the Valencia Cathedral, once the site of Roman temple, then a Moorish mosque but today a grand, breathtaking structure, see the UNESCO protected Llotja de la Seda, with its remarkable Hall of Columns and one of the most significant secular Gothic structures in Europe, or take a break from the heat and visit the largest oceanarium in Europe, the L’Oceanogràfic, and marvel in it’s incredible contemporary design. Wander around the old town, visit the Almirante Muslim Baths and did we mention, you can also go to the beach? Whether you want to escape the heat in one of the fantastic museums in this port city, or bask in the hot Spanish sun, make sure to check out our top picks in Valencia.
