Do you want to know the rich history and culture of the city of Valencia? Let yourself be accompanied by an official native guide, very passionate and knowledgeable about his land.

This tour is special because it is planned as a journey through time through more than 2,000 years, visiting the most emblematic buildings where key events in the history of the city took place. I will reveal the legacy left by the Romans, Arabs and Christians and I will tell you legends of legendary characters who lived in Valencia such as the Borja family, or Jaime I, El Conquistador.

1. Plaza del Ayuntamiento, the nerve center of the city.
2. Plaza de la Reina: Torre de Sta. Catalina, Torre Micalet and the Cathedral with its interesting mix of architectural styles.
