    We can find inside the city...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We can find inside the city diverse gardens to have a nice and pleasant walk. For example:
     Antiguo Cauce del Río Turia The Old Turia Riverbed
    Now converted into a garden running through the city, the old Turia riverbed is a centre for culture and leisure. There are sports facilities and recreation areas for children, particularly the Gulliver adventure park, with its immense Gulliver statue on which children can play and romp, now a tourist symbol of the city. On the east bank of the riverbed Stands the Palau de la Música , one of the city's outstanding cultural centres.
     Jardines del Real / Viveros Municipales Royal Gardens or Municipal Gardens
    Located across the Turia riverbed from the ancient city centre, these gardens once contained the Royal Palace, and now have splendid rosebeds, exotic trees, a children's recreation area and the City Zoo.
     Jardín Botánico Botanical Gardens
    This was the first botanical garden established in Spain, containing thousands of plant and tree species and varieties.
     Jardines de Monforte Monforte Gardens
    Neoclassical style gardens adorned with Italian sculptures, providing a classical style gardens adorned with Italian sculptures, providing a romantic mood.

    Discover my favourite cottage...

    Discover my favourite cottage in El Palmar - small, beautiful village about 25 km south of Valencia (drive the road along the coast). There are delicious fish (including eels from nearby Albufera Lake) in restaurants here - come here and taste.

  • We went to a town called Piles...

    by germanyamy Written Aug 24, 2002

    We went to a town called Piles (pee-les) near Gandia, not far from Valencia. A fantastic resort town on the beach, but it doesn't open until the summer!!!! Which we found out the hard way. The youth hostel is cheap and on the beach, but it's best to book ahead. We didn't and had to stay at the Bar Siesta! Still a fun place though.

    Placed on Avenue of the Valencian Parliament, one of the development areas of the city, the modern architecture of this congress hall is very attractive and ethereal.

    A sign at the Lonja's walls

    In this uncertain times, it is always rewarding to see signs like this dedicated to Peace.
    It says: "From the Valencia traders to Peace" and is dated back in... 1876!!!

    one of the sides of the garden

    This large tunnel houses a green house above the main car park. The archs are supposed to be covered soon with plants (as soon as they grow!)
