I had a joy touring Casco Antiguo. So many antique buildings and market places. The Kuna indians were such a beautiful sight. The people selling in the markets are truly talented. The food is just great. I visited this place twice during my trip and loved it each time.

loved being inside the casco antiguo very interesting and a friend of ours who has lived in Valencia all his life was able to explain the history and architecture of each tourist attraction.

Wander around to see the real Valencia, nice old buildings, yes graffiti!, cafes, tourist shops great to wander around going from one point of interest to another but don't expect anything amazing. It's just Valencia as it is and was built, you get a real feel of the city here and very nice just for a wander.

Narrow shaded streets. Busy at times quiet at others. We arrived by tourist bus and wandered through looking at shops, and having a coffee or Coke in the bars

We were there for "Las Fallas" and stayed right by the Ayuntaminto. This was ideal for experiencing "La Mascleta" every day of the festival as well as the processions and burning of the ninots on the final night.

We don´t have many of these back home... so a stroll around streets with hundreds years of history is quite nice!

Find yourself a GPS, kidding, and go into the casco antiguo. The buildings, plazas, museums, churches, restaurants, cafes and yes, even hotel caro, that you will find here are amazing. A must see when in Valencia. Don't miss it.

Nice for a walk! I was in this area during a visit to Valencia for the Las Fallas festival back in 2006. It is really nice to just walk around and get a coffee or food or just to explore.

The Casco Antiguo is the area around the Cathedral and the Basilica of the Virgin of the Helpless, as well as the Plaza de la Virgen, where one can see the very beautiful fountain. This area can be walked by visitors and one can find many restaurants where one can eat and be refreshed. There are also many tourist stores.

I guess you have to know where you are going but if, like us, you just wander into the barrio looking for the atmosphere, its a little like walking through a pedestrianized suburb of east London. Not recommended unless you are a fan of graffiti!
