Valencia is one of the biggest cities in Spain, and one among the liveliest destinations. It is located at the Mediterranean Sea, and you will find beaches right in the very heart of it. During the summer-months it is heavily visited by tourists, and if you want to spend holidays at the beach, with fantastic possibilities for any kind of sports (golf, diving, cycling, tennis, etc. are all very popular here) and a boiling nightlife, together with an ample cultural offer, then Valencia is the place for you.
Important trade fairs confirm Valencia's position as one of the most dynamic cities in Spain, as does the spectacular Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, the "City of Arts and Sciences", a newly constructed area of the city boasting extravagant architecture.
After all that probably you will get hungry, and you have the chance to try Spain's most famous food right where it was born: "Paella Valenciana".
Then Valencia is of course the city where "El Cid", Spain's national hero, fought against the Moors, and popular festivals in the city and many villages around still remind of this epoch.
In recent years, important international sports events like the America's Cup and the Formula 1 Grand Prix on a street circuit at the city's port have put Valencia more than ever on the world map.
