    This port city is located on the southeast coast of Spain, where the Turia river joins the Mediterranean Sea. It is famous for the City of Arts and Sciences, with futuristic structures, such as the planetarium, the aquarium and an interactive museum.

    It has several beaches, including some within the nearby Parque de la Albufera, a wetland reserve with a lake and trails. Founded in Roman times, it has buildings that are hundreds of years-old, including the medieval city gate and the old prison of the Torres de Serranos. The Lonja de la Seda was built on the 16 century when the city was a rich and powerful mercantile centre. Right in front of it is the Central which was built in 1914. In the medieval centre, the Cathedral of Valencia houses a sacred chalice from the 1st century and the octagonal bell tower of the Miguelete. El Jardín del Turia forms a green strip that connects the Bioparc Zoo with the port and Malvarrosa beach.  The Museum of Fine Arts has works by El Greco and Goya.
