Travel report Valencia
The third biggest city of Spain is renowned far beyond the national borders for the Las Fallas spring festival with its giant papier-mâché figures. But the travelogues suggest that a stroll through Valencia is well worthwhile not just during the festival. Especially in the historic quarter, there are many attractions to be discovered, such as Valencia Cathedral. The Silk Exchange, which according to the travel guides was constructed between 1482 and 1533, is regarded as one of the most important examples of the secular Gothic style in Europe. In 1996 this monument was even declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Travel writers enthuse above all about the architectural diversity of the cityscape. On this account the modern examples of urban development in this city of the arts and sciences are definitely not to be missed.
