Plaza del Ayuntamiento

Valencia is the capital and the largest city in the Province of Valencia and the Community of Valencia in Eastern Spain. The city, with a large historical center, is considered to be one the most significant in Spain. Even more, the city has extraordinary beaches, especially frequented during the summer to beat the heat, being an ideal city for leisure and relaxing holidays while enjoying its good weather. 

The city is located on the Mediterranean coast, where River Turia flows into the Mediterranean Sea in the middle of the "Gulf of Valencia". However,when the city was founded by the Romans, it was located on an island on River Turia, 4km away from the sea. Also,10km south of the city, Albufera de Valencia can be found, one of the largest lakes in Spain. It is the mostly known as a natural area in the Community.

Among Valencia's historical heritage there is the Cathedral, El Miguelete, Torres de Serranos y Quart and Lonja de la Seda (UNESCO World Heritage since 1996). The city of Valencia also has a great deal of cultural institutions and scenic spaces with important economic and cultural value such as Palau de les Arts, Museo de Bellas Artes de Valencia, Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno, Palau de la Música or Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias. All these institutions and centres give Valencia an undeniable national and international prestige along with an unique metropolitan area that contribute to rising numbers of tourists in the city.

Valencia is obviously proud of preserving the most part of its historical gardens, repecting its traditional green areas and historical buildings. These gardens have always been associated to old religious, public or residential buildings, perfectly integrated in the new urban space with promenades, avenues and public parks.
