The City of today

Valencia has undergone a real face lift in the last two decades. The river Turia which flooded Valencia many times has been redirected. Now at that place you find the Turia gardens a parc of 7km long in the heart of the city. Other important improvements like the underground system, the City of Sciences, the IVAM (Valencian Institute of Modern Art), the Palace of Music and the Palace of Congresses etc. Has made Valencia a city that is ready for the future.

    For such an old city I didn't know Valencia had so many modern new buildings. Fascinating tour. Thanks for showing us around.

    Wonderful pages on Valencia! Great travelogues. Enjoyed hearing about the Museum, L'Oceanografic,and a good restaurant tip. Excellent shopping tips. Your photographs are super and put an emphasis on architecture, which I love. Thanks ever so much.

    Now I realised that Velencia is not about the famous football team, it is actually a wonderful place.
