The architecture and energy alone make this a great ace to visit. We didn't really eat there but really enjoyed our quick walk through. The surrounding stores and shops are also interesting.

Buy a Paella here, not only the food but the special paella pan to cook it and of course visit the Market. Have a walk around the place visiting the small streets and squares surrounding the place.

If you love food then this is the place to go to. Not only is there every variety of fruit and veg available but meat, fish and cheese. As well as that there are herbs and spices, bread cakes and olives. This place is a must for anyone who enjoys eating or drinking.

As for most touristic places in Valencia it is really easy to access on foot Central Market . It is cool inside and the food stalls are really worth the visit in an old market hall. Restaurants close by seem everso toursits traps !

Only open mid morning until mid afternoon but well worth coming and trying all the delicious treats, we had breakfast and lunch here most days on our stay in Valencia, they have fresh juice, fruit and pastries for breakfast and the central bar is great for lunch.
