If you’re on the look-out for something special to take home for a loved one (or yourself) from your trip to Valencia, then look no further. You can buy all kinds of unique and interesting gifts not available anywhere else. No need to make a last minute dash into the nearest tourist shop selling plastic keyrings and magnets – just read on for some much more local souvenir shopping inspiration.
Valencia is world famous for its ceramics and, while there are no shortage of ceramics factory outlets outside the city, most visitors will be able to find a special souvenir at one of the stalls around Plaza Redonda and adjacent streets, and the shops inside and outside of the Central Market.
If you’re visiting Valencia in May – one of the best months to visit – check out this outdoor traditional artisan market where you can pick up some local cookware, pottery, decorations and other unique homeware items. The market lasts all month, on Plaza de la Reina, by the Cathedral.
