Great central location

A cool area of the city...lots of graffiti and cool bars and cafes. Narrow streets to wander through at your own pace.

We leased an apartment in this Harrison for two weeks. The are is most charming and very eas to get around in. Great cafes, shops and very friendly people. I am not a city person, but found myself at complete ease in this area of Valencia.

I was walking with my wife through the narrow streets of this marvellous neighbourhood, but we got lost. While we walked through this neighbourhood we saw the ancient buildings in El Carmen, the amazing architecture, the multicultural atmosphere...

We were staying in the heart of this district and it is beautiful to stroll around. very busy on Sunday, with tour groups from the cruise ships. lots of bars, cafes and restaurants etc. worth a visit.

this area is known as old town. it has some great bars and restuarants and some great old buildings. over the years it has become a little pricy but if you look carefully you can still find some cheap and cheerful places.

If you're young and "hip" the locals will tell you to stick to Benimaclet and Ruzafa, as a visitor I really enjoy this area. If you're new in town, this area is best for meeting people. From Calle Caballeros there's some cool bars and cafes on the off-streets. Radio City is good for local bands, this Barrio (neighbourhood) is buzzy... More
