Best of the Valencia sights – Admiring the City of the Arts and Sciences from the Highest Valencia Terrace

Valencia is what it is today because of the City of the Arts and Sciences. Enjoying the wide range of scientific and artistic sights is certainly recommended for the daytime. At night, however, if you’re in search of something unusual and extra special, then enjoy an aerial view of the City of Arts and Sciences from the highest terrace in the city. Sit back and watch the sunset over the city as you sample the best local wines and taste freshly prepared local dishes. This unique culinary experience really is a must for anyone wishing to capture the best views in the city.

Wandering through the Turia Gardens

Take a stroll or pedal a bike through these meandering gardens and you will certainly be soaking up a typical view. Many people enjoy practising sports like football, jogging or tai chi in the grounds and in warm weather you are sure to spot people lying in the shade of the trees to read a book or listen to music. It is one of the Valencia sights that is hard to miss since the gardens are located in the bed of the diverted Turia River, and thus wind their way through the city for 7km from west to east. Popular with all ages it is one of the most quintessential Valencia sights and we thoroughly recommend you visit it.

Looking out across L’Albufera Waters

Albufera Valencia is the famed nature reserve located just outside the city. Come here to escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre and enjoy spectacular views across the waters and rice fields. Home to many endangered species of bird and fish, you will find yourself surrounded by bird song and the gentle lapping of the waters. Since the area is also the birthplace of paella, we recommend you sample some whilst you are there!

Looking out over the Historic Old Town

It may be a 207-step climb up an ancient spiral staircase to reach the top of El Miguelete bell tower, but the views once you emerge from the stairwell are worth it for any history buff. You will be granted a view across the rooftops of Valencia Old Town, its historic quarter. Of particular note is that you will be able to enjoy an aerial view of Valencia’s 13th century cathedral. The tower is located in the Plaza de la Reina, a square that itself deserves recognition as an excellent spot in which to pause and soak up the atmosphere in this historic part of town.

Beach views – Playa de la Malvarrosa

If you’re in search of a tropical beach paradise then look no further than Malvarrosa beach, which is located very close to the city centre and is an easy bus ride away. With clear, refreshing waters and clean sands, you’ll enjoy your time spent here experiencing a typical Spanish activity: spending time at the beach. If you get too hot out on the sand then pop into any of the bars and restaurants that stretch along the length of the beach to enjoy a cold beverage and some tapas. Yet another one of the Valencia sights ticked off your bucket list.
