  • Wonderful place with the nice fountain representing the 8 irrigations that bring in the water for the farmers. Plenty of spots to sit and people watch. Free walking tours also start here. The beautiful church and its dome are wonderful to take in.
  • This place is amazing located in the center of Valencia. You can stop there for a break and sip a fresh lemonade. When I visited the plaza, there was a free show of flamenco and local dances that was planned for almost the whole morning. I recommend to check if any show is planned.
