The city of Valencia has a lot to offer, and now that it is the World Capital Design, every day there are hundreds of different events to enjoy to the fullest.
But apart from that, there are places that are essential, places and customs that transmit the essence of the city.
Here we go! Take notes…
1.- Know the 3 most emblematic buildings of the city✨
It is fundamental to enter and be surprised by the interior of the 3 most important buildings in Valencia:
La Lonja de la Seda, a Gothic masterpiece; The Church of San Nicolás, called the Valencian Sistine Chapel; The Cathedral of Santa Maria, where the Holy Grail is hidden.
Each site has its why, its secrets and an architecture that will leave you breathless.
Here you can find out how to meet them
2.- See the most beautiful sunset in Valencia❤️
The best sunset in Valencia, without a doubt, is in the Albufera Natural Park: a unique, idyllic spot, surrounded by rice fields, beaches with dunes, more than 300 types of birds, lakes and the most beautiful viewpoints.
If you get on a boat to see the sunset from the heart of the lake, you will understand what we say… you will fall in love.

3.-Know the mysteries that hide the Caves of San José🧐
Just 45 minutes from Valencia we find the longest navigable underground river in Europe.
And it is that neither its origins are known (we cannot calculate exactly when it was formed) nor do we know its exact length, because the end has not yet been reached.
It is a unique experience as it makes you discover a new place very close to Valencia, you will enter the center of the earth and learn about speleology and history.
Very funny and with a surprise at the end of the tour…

8.- Enjoy an authentic Valencian ”almuerzo”
You cannot come to Valencia and not try an authentic Valencian almuerzo.
Is not a breakfast, neither a lunch. Is something that happen between both.
What is? Well, a centuries-old tradition that arose as a result of the hard days in the orchard, which required great physical effort and getting up very early.
In the middle of the morning (between 9 and 12 o’clock) the workers enjoyed the “esmorzaret” made up of: peanuts, olives and pickles + a sandwich, sometimes XXL + beer or wine with soda + cremaet.
