Few cities like Valencia are capable of bringing together the remains of its most remote past, dating back to 138 BC, with the most innovative and avant-garde buildings built in the new millennium.
Valencia is commerce and culture, cinema, theatre, museums, music, business. It is an international and avant-garde design centre, and one of the most active cities for fairs and congresses in Europe.
Because of its geographical location, Valencia has historically been the gateway to Spain's Mediterranean, and has the special charm of cities that are seaports. In addition, the fine sand and clean water, the wide open sea and the proximity of the coastal mountains give the Valencian coast a unique attraction.
