It was Valentine’s Day when I was in Valencia at the beginning of this year but one needs not such a special occasion to fall in love with this stunning city. From the moment I checked in to my hotel in the streets of Barrio del Carmen I could breathe the life and scents of the place and say ‘Ay, mi querida España!’.
There’s a lot to say about Valencia and it’s incredible heritage but I’ll let the pictures do the talking. One thing that photos cannot express is the kindness of Valencian people. Their openness, their joy of life despite having been through difficult times in the past years – those are gems that make a tourist appreciate an experience there better than the baroque buildings, the great food and the possibilities of entertainment.
