Explore Valencia

Valencia is the capital and most populous city of the Autonomous Community of Valencia and the third largest city in Spain, with a population of around 810,000. It is integrated into an industrial area on the Costa del Azahar. Its main festival, the Falles, is known worldwide, while the traditional dish, paella, originated around Valencia. The city contains a dense monumental heritage (including the Llotja de la Seda - World Heritage Site since 1996), but its landmark is undoubtedly the City of Arts and Sciences, an avant-garde and futuristic museum complex.
