Here’s a hot tip for anyone who’s just found luxury property for sale in Valencia and is about to make the move to Spain – the Marina Real Juan Carlos I!
This is an absolute must-visit for anyone new to the area, especially if you’re keen to immerse yourself in the history and culture of this fantastic place as soon as you arrive and have finished unpacking.
From your Valencia property, you will find one of the most important landmarks in the entire city, with some of the most beautiful buildings such as the 19th century Harbour Sheds and the Edificio del Reloj.
The Harbour Sheds were built as part of the 1910 Plan for the Improvement and Expansion of the Harbour, complete with stunning modernist architecture and features, including navigation and marine scenes, as well as colourful ceramics of grapes, oranges and more.
You’re also sure to be wowed by the Edificio del Reloj, or the exhibition hall for the autonomous port of Valencia. Named after the clock that can be seen in the tower, this neoclassical building sits at the very entrance to the port and is often home to temporary art exhibitions so keep an eye out for anything in particular you’d like to see.
A visit to the marina is a must for one other very important reason – the beaches! Here, you’ll find La Malvarrosa and El Cabanyal, where you can stroll in the evening or enjoy a spot of paella along the seafront. What better welcome to Valencia do you need?
