Being a tourist guide is the only job I have done since I finished my studies in Tourism and obtained the official qualification to work as a guide. Among the many options offered by the tourism sector, I chose this one, because I like to contact diverse people and share the knowledge that I have acquired over the years.My goal is to try to ensure that whoever visits us optimizes their stay in the town. A good visit can start with a simple step.

About the Tour

Three Cultures: Jewish, Arab, Christian
In this short walk we are going to see how the city was taking shape from the 13th century. At first the various religions were respected and each one of them was established in different neighborhoods.
We started in the Plaza de los Pinazo , next to the entrance of the subway there, there was a long time ago the door of the wall that gave access to the Jewish quarter. We begin a tour of the places where the Jewish quarter used to be: Antigua University, Margarita de Valldaura Square, Calle del Mar, which was the center of the now-defunct Jewish quarter. We are talking about the remains that have been found in a Palace that is being restored.
From the Jewish quarter we get into Islamic Valencia , passing through the Plaza Redonda , we continue towards the Plaza del Mercado , indicating which was part of the route of the Islamic wall, where were the cemeteries , origin of the names of many streets, among other things of interest.
Finally we get into the Christian neighborhood that after the Reconquest was configured around the Cathedral, the new religious and power center of medieval Valencia. We finish the tour in the Plaza de la Virgen.
These are some of the places we pass through:

  • University of Valencia (visit of the cloister)
  • Calle del Mar and Valeriola Palace facade
  • Round Square
  • Central Market
  • Cathedral


A different way of seeing the city through the different cultures that passed through here.
