We will start this guided tour of Valencia in the Virgin’s Square, the heart of the historic centre of the city. Under our feet the city of Valentia was founded by the Romans. All around us we will discover the Cathedral, the Basilica of the Virgin and the fountain representing our river Turia with its irrigation channels.
We will talk about two important traditions that take place here: the floral offering to the Virgin of the Forsaken during the Fallas and the meetings of the Water Court (Intangible Heritage of Humanity). Alongside the religious and spiritual power of the city we also find the nucleus of political power: the Palau de la Generalitat.
But Valencia is much more! Its captivating streets smell of orange blossom and speak to us of a rich past, of legends, curiosities, tradition, heritage and lively folklore…
We will reach the Serranos Towers, the main gateway to the walled city, and we will look out over the old Turia riverbed, which has become a green lung for the city.
We will continue our way to the Old Silk Market, a symbol of the prosperity and commercial influence that Valencia experienced during the 16th century, a real architectural jewel!
From the 15th century we jump to the 20th century and almost without moving from our location to delight us with the modernist architecture of the Central Market of Valencia, are you ready to discover the Cathedral of the Senses? This magnificent space is dedicated to the sale of the highest quality fresh produce and is the largest speciality market in Europe.
And there is nothing as ESSENTIAL as unveiling its mouth-watering and abundant gastronomy. Do you know the authentic Valencian paella recipe? What is Valencian white gold?
We will culminate our guided tour in the Round Square, with many recommendations for you to continue enjoying your experience in Valencia.
Recuerda buscar el paraguas NARANJA, ¡en cuanto llegues a la plaza nos verás enseguida!
Te recomendamos venir al tour con calzado cómodo, agua y protección solar.
If you go to another city just look for the orange umbrella.
