Valencia is a mix of very old legacy with avant-garde architecture and the most innovative buildings. The most ancient remains found there date back to the year 138 B.C., its name comes from the Romans, they had already called Valentia.

It is a city that has evolved over time, it has always had an interesting location for all settled cultures in the Iberian peninsula, only have to visit the cathedral in order to understand this since is built over an Arab mosque, which was in turn built on a Roman temple. This great cultural mix is located in the Plaza de la Virgen, where we can also visit the Basilica of the Virgen de los Desamparados and not very far from there is the Royal Convent of Santo Domingo, a building that dates back to the XIII century.
To this collection of antiques we must add the Palau de la Generalitat and the Lonja de la Seda, both built in the gothic style and were declared Patrimony of the Humanity.
All of this coexists along with buildings as emblematic and contemporaries such as those that make up the City of Arts and Sciences of architect Santiago Calatrava, formed by a Planetarium, the Arts Palace, the Museum of Science and the Oceanographic Park.
