Favorite thing: Blasco Ibáñez was a famous Valencian writer who portraited the Valencian society of the XIX and early XX century.

the broadest avenue in Valencia is named after him. This avenue consisted in linking the Royal gardens with the beach through a very broad avenue with gardens in the middle.

the project was not totally completed, as it would mean to demolish a lot of building in the Cabanyal neighborhood, a former fishermen suburb. The plans to complete it are controversial.

The first part of the avenue are occupied by university building. Pictured is the building of the rectorate.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
