    Lots of them: Calle Don Juan de Austria

    by Maggies Written Aug 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a pedestrian street in the center of Valencia, next to Calle Colon (subway stop - Colon). There are lots of shoe stores on this street and of course Zara, Mango and El Corte Ingles.

    What to buy: If you are lucky to catch the sales (July, January) you can get great bargains. In shops like Zara and Mango you can even get 80% off. The only thing you have to worry about is putting all you bought in your suitcase. Not as easy as it seems ;-)

    Mercado Colon: Mercado Colon

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's close to Colon street and it's also an entrance to El Corte Ingles. And if you get hungry while shopping you can sit in one of few restaurants in Mercado Colon, it's very nice and gives you shadow - quite needed by many people during summer in Valencia.

    Poet Querol Street

    by DanielF Written Apr 30, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This street leads from the Peace street to the cross between Painter Sorolla Street and Boats street. It is lined with luxury boutiques of international firms. Among them you will find the main outlet of the famous china figures maker "Lladró". The head quarters and the factory are in Valencia. Their delicate porcelain figures are a bit kitsch in my opinion, but they seem to be extremely popular with excentric collectionist from many countries, particularly the USA and Japan. They would pay a fortune for some of these figures.

    Stalls outside the market

    by DanielF Written Apr 28, 2003

    Traditionally, these stalls were occupied by sellers of pottery and other tools for cooking. They still sell this kind of stuff, but some of them are a bit more tourist oriented. There are also some stalls that offer tapas and refreshments.

    Traditional Valencian clothes.

    by DanielF Written Mar 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Traditional clothes still play an important role for many Valencians (the "fallers" in particular), as they are required for the many festivals that take place along the year. For this reason, it is not surprising the large amount of shops selling traditional clothes, rich fabrics and the complete outfit for the fallers. These shops are to be found mainly in the old town and in Russafa.

    City center and main city malls.: Shopping and entertainment in Valencia.

    by LuigiMS Updated Oct 8, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Southern part of the city center ("calle Colón, Poeta Querol, Don Juan de Austria, Játiva, San Vicente, plaza San Agustín, Pintor Sorolla" , and surrounding area, is the traditional and old shopping area in Valencia, before malls spotted around the city.
    The main malls with stores, restaurants and cinemas are:
    Centro Comercial El Saler: very near Ciutat de les Arts i Les Ciències.
    Heron City (near Paterna): Some kms NW from the city taking Ademuz Highway, very beautiful, with street amusement, recommended for all ages. It includes Kinepolis, a great facility for cinemas with an impressive hall.
    Centro Comercial Bonaire (near Aldaia): the biggest in the city, very beautiful too and it includes night bars for young people and nice Warner theatres for movies.
    Nuevo Centro (neighborhood of Campanar): the oldest mall and very traditional.
    Centro Comercial Gran Turia (neighborhood of Fontsanta): It's SW of the city, beside the new riverbed.
    Centro Comercial Alfafar (Alfafar, pista de Silla): very large.

    What to buy: In the city center area, you will find nearly everything, from cheap to expensive. Most luxury shops are along Poeta Querol. And the main street is without a doubt, "calle Colón", the most commercial street in Valencia.

    On Sunday morning there were numerous flea market stands set up around the streets in front of the Central Market. I think it was on Avenida Maria Christina or right around. All sorts of "stuff".
