Where Is Valencia, Spain?

Nestled in the center of the Gulf of Valencia, at the mouth of the Turia River of the Mediterranean Ocean on the south coast of Spain, lies the city of Valencia. Positioned directly in front of the island of Ibiza, Valencia sits at the same geographical level as Mallorca.

What Is Valencia, Spain Known For?

One of Spain’s oldest cities, Valencia has loved, lost, and lived. From the city that gave you paella, the best weather in the country, and genuine Spanish authenticity enhanced by smaller urban crowds, Valencia is the best “in between” destination where you can bounce back and forth from northern Barcelona to southern Alicante. Typically regarded as a Spanish city break, Valencia is also the proud owner of enviable beaches, where beach bums can soak in the rays and kick back in style. Whether you sip a mojito on the golden sands or in the classy city squares, Valencia is the crème de la crème of the city and the coast.

Places to Visit in Valencia, Spain

  • Valencia Cathedral: What can you say about the Metropolitan Cathedral–Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady of Valencia? Apart from being a mouthful to say, Valencia Cathedral is sandwiched between two stunning squares, Plaza de la Reina and the Plaza de la Virgen. An extremely impressive architectural building, Valencia Cathedral is built on the site of an ancient mosque but has remained a Catholic cathedral since the reign of James I, The Conqueror. Valencia Cathedral’s mixed architectural style and adornments have given it its unique character over the years. The pleasing wave of tranquillity and serenity that immediately washes over you as soon as you step through the doors attracts thousands of visitors every year.
  • Central Market: One of the oldest markets still in use in Europe, the Mercado Central has been declared a “Heritage of Cultural Interest” site by the Spanish Ministry of Culture. A colorful and lively market, local proprietors sell their wares, from delicious locally made produce to authentic street delicacies. Whether you want a piñata or a papaya, you are bound to find the very best of them at Mercado Central.
  • Valencia Harbor: Walk alongside the marina, take in the stunning views of the bustling harbour and people-watch at your leisure. As one of the largest harbors in the Mediterranean, the Valencia Harbor allows visitors to shop, eat, and drink at the numerous bars, shops, and restaurants that populate the marina. As you sit and relax, you can observe the docked cruise ships, yachts, and superyachts that bob up and down in the sea.

Popular Destinations Near Valencia

  • Bunol: Another smaller shard of the Spanish landscape, Bunol sits some 40 kilometers inland of Valencia. It has a population of less than 10,000 but 30,000 souls flock into town every August for the week of festivities that is La Tomatina — essentially a food fight where participants hurl tomatoes at each other in a blitz of red pulp. Pity the inhabitants of this tiny Spanish village who have to clean it up.
  • Ibiza: A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the island of Ibiza is overflowing with gorgeous sandy beaches and stunning views of the endlessly blue stretch known as the Mediterranean Sea. Millions of visitors arrive at the largest Balearic Island to dance to the electronic dance music, sample the summer club scene, take in the gorgeous views, and soak in the warm Spanish sun. Despite its riotous nightclub history, the Spanish Tourism Office has implemented several measures to introduce a quieter, cosmopolitan, and more cultured tourism scene that will appeal to an international audience of tourists. With this in mind, it can be said that no matter who you are or what you are looking for in your holiday, it can certainly be found on the island of Ibiza.

Best Neighborhoods in Valencia

  • Ruzafa: Super cool and quickly gentrifying, Ruzafa is a brisk walk south of the train station, establishing itself as a place where people all around the city can congregate and enjoy all the treasures this little corner of town has to offer. Unapologetically hipster equipped with unique art spaces and cupcake-central bakeries, Ruzafa is a place where you can find everything. Whether you want to nurse a gin and tonic or scoff down veggie delights, Ruzafa is a place where a unique brand of appeal lies everywhere – including the streets.
  • El Carmen: A tangled web of streets, alleys, and plazas, El Carmen has largely shaken off its seedy past to become Valencia’s most famous neighborhood. For many, El Carmen is the city. When you “go downtown,” this is where you generally end up. With narrow cobbled streets, cool street art, cute boutiques, quaint bars, delightful restaurants, and an eclectic mix of people mingling about the plazas, it’s one of the most popular places for tourists to visit. Beautiful and one of a kind, El Carmen is anything but boring.
