Gandía

The town of Gandia, capital of the region of La Safor, is located 50 minutes drive from Valencia airport. Nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains of the Sierra, Gandia is one of the most popular destinations on the Costa de Valencia. A success that it owes in particular to its beautiful golden sandy coastline stretching over 5 km. But if Gandia is known for the charms of its coastline, it is not less because of the attractions of its old town. The seigniorial buildings testify to the glorious past of this ducal city. Among the vestiges of this era, how can we not mention the sumptuous Ducal Palace, which stands proudly on the bank of the Serpis? Gandia is also known for its many culinary specialties, including arròz negro, a black paella made with squid ink.

Valencia

Valencia is not simply the birthplace of paella. In the southern Spanish city on the Mediterranean, there is never a shortage of fresh seafood, fruit and vegetables. The best address for high quality products is the Mercado Central. The market hall with its impressive ceiling is an attraction itself. Also in the old town are the Silk Exchange and the cathedral with its octagonal bell tower, El Micalet. A special flair awaits you in the thousand-year-old El Carmen district, which is now very popular with artists and turns into a popular nightlife district in the evenings. By relocating the Turia River, Valencia has created a unique city centre. Like a green ribbon, the parkway runs through the entire city, with over 160 kilometres of cycle paths. It ends in the new landmark of the metropolis: the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias. The futuristic complex is a masterpiece of modern architecture and delights with numerous leisure and cultural activities. 


Must-do / Must-see - our suggestions

To do

  • Founded in 1998, the City of Arts and Sciences is a must when visiting Valencia. Among the impressive futuristic buildings that make up the city, you can visit the Oceanogràfic, the largest aquarium in Europe, with some 500 species of fish, reptiles and aquatic birds, or the Hemisfèric, a 3D cinema with a gigantic 900-meter curved screen!
  • Another activity not to be missed during your stay in Valencia is a visit to the Lonja de la Seda (Silk Hall). This impressive 15th century building has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Every detail of this richly decorated gothic architectural masterpiece is well worth seeing.

 

To see
