Valencia, Spain Cruise Port

Valencia is a bright, lively region, famous for its two bold fruits – delicious Valencia oranges and their plump tomatoes. The latter of these covers Valencia during the Tomatina festival, which takes place on the last Wednesday in August in Bunol, a town in the Valencia region. If cruising to Valencia during the Tomatina festival, be prepared to duck and cover because the town is painted red by the splatter of thousands of tomatoes being hurled by the festivals participants. This annual event draws thousands of participants the world over, but there’s always something to see in beautiful Valencia, Spain. Featured below are a few of our favorite experiences for the cruise port of Valencia, Spain:

  • The City of Arts and Sciences is the crowning jewel of Valencia. It is a 90-acre complex with museums, an aquarium and a concave IMAX screen.
     
  • Spend a day at the beach. Valencia is located on the Mediterranean coast and there are several beaches to choose from, including Playa de Malvarrosa and El Saler.
     
  • Another important complex in Valencia is the Instituto Valencia de Arte Moderno, which is two art museums, one dedicated to Spanish artist Julio Gonzalez and the other Center del Carmen housed in a convent with cloisters from the 14th and the 16th centuries.
     
  • You must try paella while in Valencia, where this famous Spanish dish originated. Paella is a mid-day dish prepared in a special iron pan.
     
  • Visit the city’s Cathedral, which was built in 1262. This towering building is also said to be the home of the Holy Grail, a chalice Jesus used at the Last Supper. This is on display here.
