This WWW Server is running in Valencia, ensconced in fertile terrain on the shores of the Mediterranean close to the mouth of the Turia river. Valencia and its environs constitute a first rate tourist centre in both infrastructure and alternatives for the discerning visitor.
Of historical interest yet cosmopolitan, the city has grown and adapted to the times, conserving its rich heritage while becoming a leading economic and financial centre in presentday Spain.
Bathed in Mediterranean sun, giving warmth and that special kind of light that Sorolla immortalized on canvas, it is by no means strange that the poet in the Cantar del Mio Cid spoke of the "luminous city of Valencia".
You'll be pleasantly surprised by the City itself and the warm, inviting character of its inhabitants. We ask you to discover it for yourself and enjoy the the extensive range of activities that await you.
In the meantime you can have a "Virtual Trip", just "picking" one of the underlined items on each page, as usual. You will reach a page with more information or just a picture of the place that is mentioned.
