Beautiful Valencia!

Yes indeed. I absolutely fell in love. Valencia is a very, very beautiful city, and the people, so friendly. I have had the best days in Valencia, I hope to come back some time. (Soon.)




Valencia is the third biggest city of Spain (after Madrid and Barcelona) and its historic centre is one of the largest in Spain. (Hurray!) I love historic centres in Spanish cities, always so beautiful. Narrow cobbled streets. All the details on beautiful buildings. The romantic plazas. Taking a seat at a terraza with a glass of chilled wine in hand simply enjoying the warm sun. It doesn’t get much better if you ask me! There is just such a great atmosphere to these old historic centres.
Ah, and another fact about Valencia, the Paella originated here! What more could one want? 


Some of the top tourist attractions are the Cathedral, and the City of Arts and Science. The latter being famous for the fancy architecture, and all the fun things you can do there. I took so many pictures, thought it was very impressive. A post is coming... but a little sneak peak is in order: 



Isn't this supercool?

  5. Looks like a great place. I will add that to my list of cities to see in Spain. I think I'm going to need more time in Europe (or to strike it rich so I can come back on vacations).

    1. Valencia is worth a visit definitely! At least in Norway Valencia is not marketed that well and most people don't know how a gem it is. Or when come to think about it, most people from Norway go to Spain to get beaches and sunny weather, I don't think culture and architectural beauty is really highest on the list, which is a shame cause Spain is truly BEAUTIFUL!
