The Historic Centre of Valencia, also known as the Ciutat Vella, is without doubt one of the places in Spain where you can find many remains of the Roman Empire and its buildings, although you can also see influences from other cultures. It is surrounded by the Guillem de Castro Street, the Colón Street and the Xátiva Street and conserves two of the twelve entrances that existed in the past, the Quart Towers and the Serrano Towers.
You can see it by foot in about an hour, but if you want to take it easy, enjoy each monument and get the most out of the experience, it is best to devote one day to exploring this area of the capital of the Valencian Community. In addition, you can not miss the opportunity to eat a real paella, and not a fake one, as the Valencians say that we eat in the rest of Spain.
The only bad thing about the historic centre is that, like any historic centre, its streets are narrow and there is nowhere to leave the car, and the attractiveness of the area means that many people visit it and it is not easy to find a space in a parking garage. Therefore, in Parclick we recommend that you book your parking space in the Ciutat Vella in advance. This way, you will park before you have arrived and you can choose how long you want to leave your car in the garage.
In addition to the already mentioned pairs of towers, there is much more to see in the Ciutat Vella. One of the most striking is the Town Hall Square and the City Hall building as well. A huge terrace crowned by a great palace. The Central Market, as well as being a beautiful thing, is one of the references in terms of fresh produce throughout Europe, you should not miss it and you must buy there for dinner of the day.
Then in terms of churches it´s also great. There is the Santa Catalina with its imposing tower, the Cathedral of Santa María and Miguelete or the Royal Basilica of the Virgen de los Desamparados, located in the Plaza de la Virgen. There are a thousand other sites and the best thing that you should do is look for an itinerary so you don´t miss one, because it is worth it.
And don´t worry - enjoy a good paella without thinking about the weather, because if you book with Parclick you can take into account any plan, because we give you the ease of reserving a parking space in Valencia for the time you need and with security that your car will be well guarded.
