Surroundings

Few cities like Valencia are capable of making the remnants of its most remote past, dating back to 138 BC, coexist so harmoniously with the most modern, innovative and avant-garde buildings that are stend up in the new millennium.

When you walk through Valencia, you can feel at the same time, between its walls and under the pavement, the beat of many centuries and the life of the city in continuous change and expansion, happy and uninhibited, Mediterranean, which welcomes the traveler with the open arms.

Our apartments are located in the heart of the Historic Center, the largest in Spain and one of the largest in Europe, in the emblematic Barrio del Carmen, a benchmark for nightlife and culture in the city. Walking through its streets you will find the most varied traditional and avant-garde gastronomic offer, bars with atmosphere, many of them with live performances, terraces where you can enjoy the pleasant Mediterranean climate, art galleries, important museums, such as the IVAM, the Cultural Center of the Carmen, theaters, and of course the Cathedral Complex. In Calle Caballeros we will find the Valencian Sistine Chapel, the Parroquia Museum of San Nicolás.

Nearby, we can continue to enjoy the city with the wonderful mixture of smells, colors and flavors that the Central Market offers us, the largest covered market in Spain and one of the largest in Europe. Its large modernist building whose project dates back to 1914, houses 959 stalls literally bathed in light, which ingeniously studied comes from the domes and stained glass windows on the roof.

In front of the Market and the Church of Santos Juanes, stands one of the most representative buildings of the city, La Lonja de los Mercaderes or de la Seda. Declared a World Heritage Site, it is a masterpiece of Valencian civil Gothic. Pere Compte, founding teacher of the Guild of Stonemasons of Valencia, in addition to raising this building, also participates in such unique works as the Cathedral, the Palace of the Borja -current headquarters of Les Corts-, El Almudín or the Atarazanas.

Due to its geographical location, Valencia has the special charm of the cities that are seaports. In addition, the fine sand and clean water of its beaches, the breadth of the open sea and the proximity of the coastal mountains give the Valencian Coast a unique attraction. The mild temperatures of the Mediterranean invite you to practice outdoor sports at almost any time of the year, diving, golf, sailing, not forgetting the Albufera Natural Park and the mobile dune beaches of La Devesa, of great ecological value already less than an hour from the city.

Valencia also offers endless possibilities especially aimed at children. It is worth paying a visit to the Bioparc to enjoy the wild nature without leaving the city. In the foothills of the old riverbed, today the Turia Garden, is one of the symbols of today’s Valencia, the City of Arts and Sciences. Surprising for its dimensions and architecture, this set allows interactive learning at the L’Hemisféric Planetarium Cinema, the Principe Felipe Science Museum or L’Oceanogràfic, the largest aquarium in Europe.
Valencia is commerce and culture. The city has become a leading congress center in Europe and a first-rate meeting point for those who wish to develop their businesses or participate in its trade fair events. It is also the center of first-rate sporting events such as the MOTO GP Motorcycle World Championship on the Ricardo Tormo circuit.

In addition, since 2016, Las Fallas have been officially declared a World Heritage Site, for UNESCO “they are an expression of collective creativity that safeguards traditional arts and crafts. Las Fallas, satirical sculptures created by local artists, promote communication and dialogue between citizens “
