Tour description

One of the great attractions that Valencia has is that it is a maritime city.

However, it has always been said that the "Cap i Casal" has lived with its back to the sea.

That's right? Or, if it was, is it still so today?

We will tell you about it on our tour of maritime Valencia, a walk in which we will discover the origins of one of the neighborhoods with the most identity in the capital of Turia.



We will meet in front of the Cabañal Municipal Market , the neuralgic center of the neighbourhood, to begin our guided tour, taking us closer to the past, present and future of this old fishing district.

We will go through its peculiar urban fabric looking for its modernist facades with colorful tiles and floral motifs. Did you know that originally El Cabañal was a town made up purely of shacks?

On our way we will find picturesque and eclectic buildings such as the Teatro La Estrella, Lonja de Pescado or the Casa del Oso , but we will also find examples of urban art that has increasingly proliferated in the neighborhood.

During the tour we will get to know its gastronomy, its festivals or the way of life of its people and all those characters that Cabañal captivated, such as the writer Blasco Ibáñez or the artist Joaquín Sorolla , whose paintings represent maritime scenes that took place in the beaches of this charming neighborhood.

Precisely speaking of its beach, our steps will take us there to explain Valencia's intimate relationship with the sea.
We will walk in front of the Balneario de las Arenas , now converted into a luxury hotel and which was the scene of wave baths for the aristocracy of the early 19th century. Did you know that it became the origin of summer vacations on the beach?

We will walk through the Marina area, which is currently trying to integrate the leisure and culture of the maritime neighborhoods; A good example is the Veles e Vents building, built during the America's Cup. Do you know what this event consisted of?

With this wonderful panoramic view of the port, accompanied by the sea breeze, we will discover buildings as characteristic as the Varadero, the Tinglados... where modernist decoration continues to stand out.

We will say goodbye in the unique Clock Building , now yes, captivated by the sea.

Buena visita, excelente Guía. Quizás un recorrido un poco desconectado del mar. Pero es la circunstancia y no es culpa del evento
