Valencia is number one in our hearts – the best destination for short stays, cultural breaks, activity-filled holidays with the children and so much more.
Here are a few more facts and figures about our favourite Spanish city.
There is no denying Spain has many wonderful towns, cities, villages, monuments and beaches to visit. Despite the vast choice, Valencia is the third most visited destination in the country.
It has around 810,000 inhabitants at the last count – compare that to 536,000 in the county of Cornwall, 495,360 in Edinburgh and 8.174 million in London.
Gastronomy is a huge draw: there are over 1,700 restaurants to choose from…which might take some time. A great reason to keep coming back and make sure you have tried the best.
As well brilliant little boutique hotels and hostels, some with a focus on interior design, and hundreds of affordable hotels to take your pick from, there are more than 12 hotels with more than 20,000 beds. And if you sail in on your own boat, Valencia has 2,000 moorings in leisure ports.
And what about the 7km of beaches: Malvarossa, Las Arenas, El Saler – with 300 days of sun a year, there is time to visit them all.
