Valencia is packed with stunning architecture. In the city centre, Romanesque structures sit comfortably alongside everything from late Gothic gargoyles to Modernist facades, while the Turia riverside is home to the famously futuristic City of Arts and Sciences complex. It’s hard to pick favourites in a place like this, but here are just a few of the impressive buildings that you really have to see for yourself.
This might be the first building you see when you arrive in Valencia, and it’s a special one, declared a Historical Artistic Monument in 1961, and designed by Valencian Demetrio Ribes Marco. It was completed at the beginning of the 20th century, and walking into the entrance hall feels like stepping back in time. Before its completion, trains used to run right through the main doorways of the unfinished building to their final destination at what’s now the Town Hall Square.
