Valencia, the third largest city in the country, is surrounded by orchards and mountain ranges: oranges, mandarins and lemons bring colourful touches to the countryside. Large and cosmopolitan, it has a thriving economic and commercial activity centred on its important fairs and its harbour.
A visit to the City of Arts and Sciences is a must. Work of the Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava, this scientific and cultural leisure complex covers around two kilometres of the former riverbed of the River Turia, and several of its buildings have become icons of the city.
- With a coast boasting wonderful beaches, the area around Valencia is a pearl of nature.
- The old part of town reflects the city´s beauty, thanks to its numerous monuments.
- The “Fallas” is Valencia’s most famous and probably most spectacular festival. The 5-day festival takes place in March and the focus of the fiesta is the creation and destruction of huge cardboard, wood, paper-maché and plaster ´ninots´(puppets or dolls). A lively, loud and smoky fiesta where the town is literally set ablaze!
- Many flock to Valencia just for the delicious food! Valencia can also boast about its paella. Beside this famous rice dish, there are other delicious specialties like “fideuá” , “suc de peix” (fish soup), arroz negro, all I pebre… which we can only advise you to try in the sun in Valencia´s beautiful market square.
Academia Contacto and its team invite you to come and discover the many facets of this truly interesting city.
Our partner school in Valencia (AIP Idiomas) is located just north of the centre of the city, and is never more than a stone’s throw from every amazing attraction of this beautiful city, with the historic and biggest park in the city, Los Jardins del Real o Viveros, being just around the corner. The school is also well connected, being within 200m of Benimaclet metro station (lines 3, 4 and 6), and walking distance from Facultats metro station (line 3).
