Valencia (and its highlights) in Photos
Valencia is a beautiful city and after spending 10 days here in early 2020 we were convinced that it would be our future home in Spain. It is cosmopolitan and lively, a liveable city that is both bicycle and pedestrian friendly. It has one of Europe’s largest fresh markets, it has a 9.8 km park that runs through the city, and it has tons of history: you’ll find baroque palaces, 700 year old Catholic churches and lots of museums and galleries. You’ll also find the best of architecture in Valencia, from Gothic to Romanesque to Futuristic (the City of Arts and Sciences complex is one of Spain’s most amazing modern architectural wonders).
This post shows off Valencia through some of the best photos taken during our visit.
As I mentioned up top, we were pretty much convinced that Valencia would be our new home in Spain. Then the pandemic hit and changed our way of thinking.

I have visited Valencia which is one of my favourite cities of Spain and I have been to the indoor market which is very impressive and to La Lonja which was the silk market years ago you have no photos of it both inside and outside,. worth seeing it is with it’s distinctive pillars inside.
You’re right about the market Brian! And also about la Lonja – unfortunately we were there last March just as the pandemic was starting to happen. We didn’t want to be in a crowded space with strangers. A few days later everything closed down. But it’s at the top of our list for a return visit.
Mestalla is a remarkable place too…
