Spain’s third-largest city, the Mediterranean city of Valencia, is home to miles of golden beaches, breathtaking architectures and lively nightlife scenes.
Situated on the banks of the Turia River, Valencia converted its former riverbed into 9km of green space that stretches through the heart of the city. Known as the Turia Gardens, the gardens consist of futuristic pavilions, lakes, aquarium and botanic gardens. In the Turia Gardens, delegates can spend a day visiting the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (City of Arts and Sciences), a magnificent cultural and architectural complex designed by Santiago Calatrava.
When exploring the city, you may stumble across the city's Old Town, a historic neighbourhood known for family-run cafés, street murals, and gothic architecture. Wander through old-world Spain by visiting the Valencia Cathedral and La Lonja de la Seda.
Do not leave Valencia without sampling its array of avant-garde culinary creations made from fresh produce directly from the Mediterranean Sea. Taste local produce at the Central Market and savour an authentic paella in the Plaza de la Reina.
