MotoGP, culture, architecture and more…


Spain’s third-largest city is a magnificent place capable of rivalling the spotlight of the likes of Madrid and Barcelona. Valencia is a wonderful city with thriving cultural, eating, and nightlife scenes. Its great weather almost all year round makes it comfortable to visit even during the winter.


MotoGP: One of Valencia’s Main Attractions

During November there’s an additional reason to visit Valencia, as the MotoGP championship makes its arrival in the Spanish city like it has been doing ever since 1999 when the Circuit Ricardo Tormo was first opened. The Gran Premio de la Comunitat Valenciana has become the traditional season finale of the international championship and, with crowds nearing 150,000 people, you are guaranteed to enjoy a fantastic atmosphere. This year, the event will be held between the 10th and 12th of November.

Valencian Architecture: Unique and Astonishing

Two decades of bold development have given Valencia some of the most striking architecture in the country, adding to the wealth of elegant art nouveau buildings that decorate the streets, as well as Gothic and Renaissance monuments. The strikingly futuristic buildings of the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, designed by local architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava, are perhaps the highlight of such an amazing cityscape.


And to Top It Off: Relish on a Delicious Paella!

If you make it all the way to Valencia, then you must indulge yourself in what we promise will become an unforgettable culinary experience. Paella, perhaps one of Spain’s most internationally recognised dishes, was born in Valencia, and the locals have only continued to master and improve a dish that was already perfect.
