Valencia's Royal Marina and Beaches

Valencia's Royal Marina and Beaches


The revamp to which the Port was treated sprang from the anticipated hosting of the 32nd and 33rd America's Cup, transforming it today into the Juan Carlos I Royal Marina. A fine example of the city's transcendence as a seaside destination and its portrayal of the quintessential Mediterranean lifestyle, the Marina characterises Valencia's ambition to establish itself as an events capital and a city for sports, through this promotion of sailing and motor racing.

Designed by David Chipperfield and Spain's own Fermín Vázquez, and inaugurated for the America's Cup. It takes the form of large balconies suspended over the sea. From these platform-like structures you can watch the sun set behind the Juan Carlos I Royal Marina – a true delight for the senses. Both inside and dotted around outside you'll find some of the best restaurants and watering holes in the city.

A symbol of Valencian modernism, it is elaborately adorned with reliefs that allude to trade and shipping as well as polychrome ceramic mosaics depicting typical Valencian themes. Inside is where such events as the Feria de la Tapa, as well as concerts with performances by various international groups take place.

The rotating bridge forms part of the Formula 1 race track. Split into two 'arms', each rotates towards one side of the canal.

This neoclassical design dominates the entrance to the port and the Juan Carlos I Marina. Its façades are in traditional neo-Plateresque design.
