Free Tour Valencia Essential
SPAIN FREE TOURS ® is a young, dynamic and expanding company. We are a team of tourism professionals and guides with extensive background in culture, history and art. We work every day from our headquarters in Valencia to become a reference in tour guides services in Spain.
We propose a trip through 2,000 years of Valencia's history. Will you sign up?
We will begin this guided tour of Valencia in the Plaza de la Virgen , the heart of the historic center of the city. Under our feet the city of Valentia was founded by the Romans. Around us we will discover the Cathedral , the Basilica of the Virgin and the fountain that represents our Turia river with its irrigation ditches.
We will talk about two important traditions that take place at this point: the floral offering to the Virgen de los Desamparados during the Fallas and the meetings of the Water Tribunal (Intangible Heritage of Humanity). Along with the religious and spiritual power of the city we also find the nucleus of political power: the Palau de la Generalitat .
But Valencia is much more! Its captivating streets smell of orange blossom and tell us about a rich past, legends, curiosities, tradition, heritage and a living folklore ...
We will reach the Serranos Towers , the main access gate to the walled city, and we will look out over the old bed of the Turia River, converted into a green lung for the city.
We will continue our way to the Lonja de la Seda or Lonja de los Mercaderes, a symbol of the prosperity and commercial influence that Valencia experienced during the 16th century, a true architectural gem!
From the 15th century we will jump to the 20th century and almost without leaving our location to delight in the modernist architecture of the Central Market of Valencia, ready to discover the Cathedral of the Senses? This magnificent space is dedicated to the sale of the highest quality fresh produce and is the largest specialty market in all of Europe.
And there is nothing as ESSENTIAL as revealing its appetizing and abundant gastronomy . Do you know the authentic recipe for Valencian paella? What is Valencian white gold?
We will culminate our guided tour in the Plaza Redonda, with many recommendations so that you can continue enjoying your experience in Valencia.
