Although Spain is full of charming destinations, few places are as authentic and personal as Valencia, the land of paella, the “fallas” St. Joseph’s Festival, and kilometres of wonderful beaches and the Mediterranean sea. Full of character and history, Valencia offers numerous interesting routes, perfect for your holiday. Valencia ensures local experiences.
Due to the fact that to go to Valencia and not enjoy the nearby beaches is equal to “only enjoying half the city”, the best thing is to take advantage of the sunset to walk around some of the emblematic areas of the historical centre of the city. Are you thinking about visiting Valencia during your next holiday? Come for a walk with us today, the route is very promising:
The Silk Exchange
The old merchants’ market is also one of the principal jewels we can see during our visit to the old town of Valencia. Located in La Lonja street, very near to the Hotel Petit Palace Bristol Valencia, the construction is a beautiful corner that will take you back to another era, other times.
Declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO, the market is a precious example of the golden era of Valencia. Visit the interior and delve into the magical architecture from yesteryear and see how they sold and bought the goods offered by the merchants.
Considered by many to be one of the Spanish architectural jewels of the XX century, the Colon Market is an ideal place for lovers of history and those who are looking for the truly authentic flavours of Valencia. The many food stalls and leisure opportunities (including live music) convert the principal market in Valencia into a must visit.
The Colon Market has no parking so what better than organising free bicycles from the Petit Palace Bristol.
The Town Hall Square
A place for an obligatory visit to discover Valencia’s local ambience. With an offer of unique bars in the city (with such brands as Cappuccino Gran Cafe), which is near to the Gran Via and our hotel Petit Palace Germanias, perfect accommodation for families.
