"Ruins" Valencia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by DanielF
Valencia Warnings and Dangers: 29 reviews and 19 photos
The old area of Valencia was affected by a major flood in 1957. In the aftermath of the catastrophe, many people left the area for more modern neighborhoods. In addition, urban speculation has also taken its toll and, despite the efforts of the local authorities in the last two decades, there are still some areas in the old city that look really decrepit and dilapidated: ruins, buildings falling apart... In sumary, an urban landscape that would rather fit in Chechnya than on the sunny Mediterranean.
This does not mean that the old city should be avoided, but one has to be prepared for all kinds of sights.
Anyway, be aware that some parts of the Velluters and El Carme neighborhoods may look a bit scary, as prostitution and drugs are not uncommon. Of course, taking the usual precautions, they are not particularly dangerous.
