Now that international travel is picking back up, it is time to put Valencia, Spain, on your travel list. The city offers something for every type of traveler, here are five reasons why this popular destination should be on your radar.

 

Location

Valencia is less than three hours from the main cities in Europe, making it easy to access other cities around it. The city presents the perfect combination of stunning contemporary architecture, old-world charm and white-sand beaches, providing an array of activities for visitors to enjoy while not having to worry about huge crowds.

 

New Boutique Hotels

Valencia offers plenty of new and unique stays for travelers. One of the newest, Only YOU Hotel Valencia, boasts an urban lifestyle vibe with eclectic interiors. Puerta Serrranos Hotel mixes modern Mediterranean elegance in a highly desirable location, Blanquerias Street.

 

History

Valencia is one of the seven Christian holy cities of the world, Valencia is home to one of the most admired relics of the Catholic Church – The Holy Chalice or the Holy Grail, used by Jesus in the Last Supper. The cup has been on display at the Chapel of Holy Chalice in the Valencia Cathedral since 1916.

 

UNESCO World Heritage Destinations

Valencia is home to one of the most famous civil gothic monuments in Europe, the La Lonjais. The monument is an emblematic building that was used for silk trading. Another UNESCO site is the Water Tribunal, a court system which has existed for more than 1,000 years and continues to hold meetings weekly to settle irrigation disputes. Lastly, there’s the annual five-day Felles Festival, which honors the city’s patron Saint Joseph; the festival includes parties, parades and more.
