Great part of the old town with wonderful buildings and winding streets. Great shopping to be done here and even better bars to sit and have a drink. Be careful not to get lost!

This is another area of EL CARMEN (the old town).Lots of small winding streets all intermingling with each other. Every street seems to lead into a lovely little square piazza with great tavernas to sit and have a sangria , beer or cocktail and people watch.

I loved the Old Town. It is beautiful, lively and a mix of old and new. Amazing buildings, many restaurants, stores to go shopping, cafés, sightseeing on foot, anything and everything you can think of. Many people, good vibes and a very fun time.

Taste some paella and beers. Visiti the sorroundings of the cathedral and the fountain nearby. Local wines are great and horchata at night refreshing.

A fun and compact city to explore on foot. Narrow curved roads and alleys with picturesque homes, unique doors and fixtures make it a photographers dream

Valencia is the third largest city of Spain. The Old Town is really beautiful. Churches, squares, fountains, baroque buildings, luxury shops, restaurants, bell towers... I have been here twice and I recommend it.

While have seen nicer old towns, it is always fun to wonder the streets a bit and get lost. What was nice is that it was not like most other European old towns that are now full of the same shops.
