Valencia Green

Breathe fresh air in Valencia

Valencia boasts two million square metres of gardens. Particular highlights include the Turia Gardens, the city's green lung, the Viveros and the Botanic Garden.  Added to this vast green space are almost 20 kilometres of beaches, all of which have been awarded European Blue Flag status.

The Albufera Natural Park makes the perfect setting for a rural getaway exploring the country lanes criss-crossing El Saler and the adjacent rice fields. The same is true of the Huerta Valenciana, a compendium of small farmhouses, fields and farmsteads, surrounded by the green agriculture that envelops the city.

Having such a well-stocked pantry on the doorstep makes it ever easier to find restaurants offering interesting organic or zero food miles cuisine.

 Close to 150 kilometres of cycle paths and 40 ciclocalles (cycle-priority streets) make visiting the city on two wheels an attractive option. A public transport network comprising 46 bus routes and 9 metro lines, as well as the growth of pedestrianised areas in the city, contribute to discovering Valencia from an environmentally friendly perspective.
