Valencia Travel guide
Valencia : Michelin's recommendations
Spain’s third city, Valencia has a typically Mediterranean temperament. Nowadays, it is also a dynamic and resolutely modern metropolis. A pedestrianised area crosses the city from east to west, with a series of gardens and leisure parks dominated by the remarkable City of Art and Science, which has placed Valencia at the forefront of contemporary architecture. The port area, entirely redeveloped for the 2007 America’s Cup, has enhanced Valencia’s maritime feel.
