Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia

The stunning white avant-garde building is quite a site to see from afar. Designed and engineered by Santiago Calatrava, a Valencia native this building is truly worth a visit even if you do not plan to catch a show or performance. Reminiscent of the Sydney opera house, the building was meant to look like a ship. Here you can see mostly classical music performances and opera, and stupendous performances have been hosted here in the past, involving stalwarts such as Zubin Mehta and Placido Domingo.

Valencia Cathedral

An imposing Gothic masterpiece, the Cathedral of Valencia consists of three naves, a polygonal apse and monumental dome. Construction began in 1262 and finished in 1702, though before it was a cathedral, it was the site of a mosque and a Roman temple. The cathedral's three doors reflect the mixture of styles: the Palau (palace) door is archaic Romanesque mixed with primitive Gothic; the Door of the Apostles is pure Gothic, and the Hierros Door is Baroque. Every Thursday at midday, the Door of the Apostles is the site of the oldest tribunal in all of Europe, the Tribunal de las Aguas (Water Court), which resolves the conflicts arising over the use of water in the nearby fields. Another outstanding feature is the Gothic bell tower, known as the Miguelete, whose 207-step stairway takes you up to some of the best views over the city. The cathedral also houses the Catedralicio Diocesano Museum and the Santo Cáliz Chapel.

City of Arts and Sciences

The first of its kind in Spain, this totally white futuristic cityscape made up of enormous modern buildings is the work of famous local architect Santiago Calatrava. You'll find it in the Túria River Bed. Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias complex spreads out over 350,000 square meters (86.4 acres) and consists of four different structures but related sections: the Arts Centre, Science Museum, planetarium and Ocean Park. Each of these are must-visit spots for tourists.

Llotja de la Seda

Lonja de la Seda, in Valencia is a civil building which was built during 1482 and 1548. The majestic and splendid, Gothic facade of the structure showcases the city's prime position as a center of mercantile exchange. A must visit tourist attraction, the UNESCO considered it as a World Heritage Site in 1996.

Valencia Museum of History

In this museum, history is about much more than battles, dates, and potentates. Hidden under the dust of time there is a universe of unknown dates of seemingly trivial, but nonetheless revealing episodes. The museum aims to tell history through the lens of the quotidian. The permanent exhibition covers epochs from 138 BC - the present.

Plaza del Ayuntamiento

The Plaza del Ayuntamiento is a point of reference to start any trip around the city of Valencia. It is especially interesting as the starting-off point for a tour through the old quarter or a busy shopping spree along some of the most important nearby shopping districts in the city. The palatial Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) building dominates the square, and its bells chime out the time to passers-by. Surrounding the plaza are other buildings from Valencia's golden age, such as the Correos building (the main post office). In the center of the plaza, a fountain spurts water, surrounded by flower stalls with all the colors, sizes, varieties (and prices) imaginable. On sunny days the plaza is filled with people out for a stroll, and during the "Fallas" festival, a swarm of people meets up here every day at two o'clock for the "Mascleta", when kilo upon kilo of firecrackers are set off.
