Hi! My name is Lucia. I am a languages teacher with a degree in Social Sciences and Geography. I was born in Valencia and I'm passionate about local culture and traditions. I have lived in several countries all over the world, so I know very well what makes a place special. I am great communicator and I speak English at native speaker level. My city has lots of exciting things to do, amazing places to visit and secrets and curiosities I can help you discover. I have experience doing guided tours in cities like Dublin, Ireland. I want to make you feel at home in my hometown and share with you an unforgettable time.

About the tour

Immerse yourself in some aspects of the rich history and culture of the city of Valencia accompanied by a local guide, very knowledgable and passionate about her homeland.

This is a special tour that takes you to travel in the time machine though centuries of the rich history of the city and important events that took place in some of the most symbolic buildings and places in the heart of the city.

I will guide you so that you can discover the legacy left by Romans, Moors and Christians in the Middle Ages. I will awaken your curiosity by narrating legends of key characters that inhabited Valencia like the Borja family.

We'll start at the Cathedral with its interesting mixture of architectural styles and the nearby palaces and squares: Borja Palace, Virgin Square, Queen Square, Round Square, Lope de Vega Square.

From there, we'll walk to the iconic Old Silk Market, one of the major Valencian landmarks and UNESCO's World Heritage. Then, you will be able to admire the Baroque church of Santos Juanes and the food displays in the Central Market (if it's open), a wonder for the senses.

We will then visit the City Hall in the City Hall Square and we will finish our walk in the modernist Railway Station 'Estacion del Norte', one of the most beautiful stations in Spain.

BOOKINGS SHOULD BE MADE AT LEAST 12 HOURS BEFORE THE TOUR. TOURS NEED A MINIMUM OF 2 PEOPLE BOOKED.

Fue un tour sensacional y muy interesante. Lucía alterna comentarios producto de su estudio de la historia de Valencia con otros resultados de sus vivencias como valenciana, haciendo la explicación muy agradable, además de fundamentada. Es un tour más que recomendable. Ojalá todos los guías fueran así...
