Travel Diary: Valencia - A Day In Town

We knew the town-centre of Valencia would be a beautiful and cultural place, so we dedicated a whole day to exploring!

We hopped off the bus near the Town Hall of Valencia, which is a beautiful building surrounded by pretty gardens and a lovely fountain.
After taking some time to admire the gardens, we did a spot of shopping in nearby shops. Most of them were souvenir shops with a few cute boutiques around too!
With our shopping needs met, we started a lengthy stroll to Valencia Cathedral when we found some amazing street art!

After some photos were taken we carried on to the Cathedral...

The Cathedral was huge and from then outside itself looked ornate decorated. Once inside we purchased a walking audio tour and were able to wonder around the Cathedral listening to it and following the little map given.

The frescos, paintings, sculptures and architecture inside the Cathedral were stunning!

The audio tours took us to each section and specific features of the cathedral and told us the story behind them.

After a few hours and a quick lunch, we headed to the Plaza de la Virgen where we sat at the the beautiful Turia Fountain talking and taking in the sun and atmosphere...

We rounded off the busy day with dinner at a Chinese Restaurant, followed by cocktails at a cute bar called Bar Code...

Thanks for reading! :) xx
