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 amazing countries such as Ethiopia, Myanmar and China as well as England and Ireland, 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. My experience as tour guide started in Dublin, Ireland. I want to make you feel at home in my hometown and share with you an unforgettable time.

About the Tour

Do you want to know aspects of the rich history and culture of the city of Valencia? Let yourself be accompanied by a local guide, very passionate and knowledgeable about her land.

This tour is special because it is planned as a journey through time through the centuries, taking as a reference the most emblematic buildings where key events in the history of the city took place. I will give you the keys to discover the legacy left by the Romans and Arabs, including our gastronomy and I will tell you legends of relevant people who lived in Valencia such as the Borja or characters such as El Cid or Jaume I, El Conquistador.

We will start with the Torres de Serranos, medieval gates of the city. We will continue to the Palace of the Borja, the Cathedral with its interesting mix of architectural styles and its nearby squares: Plaza de la Virgen, Plaza Redonda, Plaza de Lope de Vega. We will continue to the iconic Lonja de la Seda (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the baroque church of Santos Juanes and the Central Market, a wonder for the senses

Important information
- There will be no tours with less than 4 people.
- If you cannot attend, I would appreciate it if you would let me know and cancel the tour

Todos los datos aportados me resultaron muy interesantes, buenas recomendaciones para comer en la ciudad y preocupación por la comodidad del grupo, buscando lugares a la sombra para las explicaciones. Muy buena experiencia, gracias Lucía.
