Itinerary

The walking tour in Valencia starts from the Tourist Office at the Plaza de la Reina, near the Cathedral.

After reaching here, your bilingual guide (English and Spanish) will first give you a small introduction about the history of Valencia and explain the impact of each time period since its foundation by the Romans in 138 B.C.

Commence your walking tour after this. On this tour you will see:

Valencia Cathedral: The particular claim to fame of Valencia Cathedral is that it has reputedly been the home to the mythical Holy Grail for over 500 years. It is an unusual church with a mixture of different styles although construction took more than 500 years.

Virgin Square: Also known as the Plaza de la Virgen, this square is at the centre of Valencia's historic district. There are many significant monuments in this area. Continue to the centre of the Old Valencia, and as well as some of the most important historical buildings in the area.

Plaza Ayuntamiento: The most central point in town is Plaza del Ayuntamiento which is in the Old Quarter of Valencia.

Plaza del Patriarca: This is a wide pedestrian space close to the administrative part of the city centre.

Round Square: Plaza Redonda or Round Square, is so called because its looks like something straight out of an 18th century theatre set. It is a traditional market surrounded by residences that form a circle.

Palace Marques de Dos Aguas: One of Spain's most beautiful palaces, it is an architectural marvel with a wonderful façade that looks like running water. See the imposing alabaster main entrance. The original building dates from the 16th century although it was completely renovated during the 18th century.

The Central Market or Mercado Central: Considered to be the largest fresh food market in Europe, it dates back to 1928. It is well worth a visit to experience the hustle and bustle as shoppers and traders go about their business among a fascinating and myriad array of fruit, vegetables, meat and fish stalls.

The Old Silk Exchange: Finish the tour at La Lonja de la Seda or the Old Silk Exchange. This beautiful former silk exchange was built in 1498. Today it is the only building in Valencia declared as a World Heritage site by UNESCO reflecting the richness of Valencia during the Middle Ages when the city was one of the strongest powers in the Mediterranean Sea.

The tour ends at Plaza de la Reina.

At the end of the tour, your guide will inform you about the possibilities of visiting other sites, restaurants and experiencing Valencia's rich nightlife.
