Valencia Sightseeing


Tribunal de las Aguas (The Water Court) Plaza de la Virgen - A UNESCO recognised open-air court which has been providing justice on local farmland matters for at least 1000 years. Watch history being made every Thursday at 12 noon outside the city's cathedral.

Head to the Fallas festival. Huge cartoon effigies of local and international celebrities loom large as the madness beneath them envelops the whole city. An experience you will never forget. 15 to 19 March. http://www.fallasfromvalencia.com

Key Areas

Football. Valencia CF and UD Levante. Boasting two teams in the top division it's a great time to experience the atmosphere of live La Liga action. Match tickets can be bought online through either team's website (valenciacf.com or levanteud.com) and directly from the ticket office at either stadium.

Stretched out over 10 hectares Bioparc transports us into the world of the African savanna. While the lions, elephants and rhinos are the stars, you should also make sure you check out the fantastic birds of prey show. www.bioparcvalencia.es

You need to pre-book a visit the Palau de la Generalitat but it is well worth the effort. This opulent palace was the seat of power for centuries and the craftsmanship both inside and outside is extraordinary.

Day Trips

Churches can be fascinating places in Spain. Iglesia San Juan del Hospital (Calle Trinquet de Cavallers, 5) is believed to be the oldest surviving medieval Christian church in the city dating from around 1260.

Some of Spain's very best wine-makers are just an hour from the city and many tour operators are on hand to help out if you don't fancy trying to make the return journey yourself. Try rutavino.com or valenciancellars.com for more info.
