Valencia, Spain’s third largest city and the birthplace of the world famous Paella is a city full of surprises; an urban gem of palm fringed beaches, orange blossoms and incredible landmarks.

The completion of the awe inspiring and somewhat space age City of Arts and Sciences in 1998 has contributed to the continued expansion of this exciting city where new designs are constantly pushing architectural boundaries. Set amongst the new developments of the city are monuments from all generations of Valencia’s past, including Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque. Incorporating all of these eras is the beautiful Cathedral, Valencia’s key religious landmark, which houses a chapel with a claim to being the holy grail. Venture down to the seafront and you will be greeted by long stretches of sandy beaches and the stylishly regenerated port area, which has recently hosted the Formula 1 Grand Prix. The fine restaurants in Valencia take advantage of the cities seafront location and there are many beautiful fish dishes on the menus as well as the local speciality, rice. The cities young population fuel the happening and vibrant nightlife scene where the partying goes on all through the night and finishes with breakfast in a chillout bar the following morning.

For team building and leisure activities, a paella cooking class will capture imagination and tantalise tastebuds. Alternatively, for something more active this coastal city is a haven for watersports and boat trips with some of the best marinas in Europe. Back on land there are opportunities to race through the lush forests of the Valencian countryside quad biking or build up some friendly competition go karting. If you are planning a summer trip then the Tomatina festival held on the last Wednesday in August every year in the nearby town of Bunol is the biggest food fight in the world and will provide a unique cultural experience.

Valencia is a city where tradition combines with modern day life and the massive investments in the infrastructure and new facilities make it an ideal destination for all ranges of events and trips.
