Weekend in Valencia

Happy to let Madrid and Barcelona steal the limelight, Valencia charms as a sophisticated cultural centre with quality museums, great restaurants and an understated beach life.

Dive straight into the Barrio del Carmen, the city’s oldest quarter. It’s full of bohemian character, narrow medieval lanes, museums, little bars and restaurants. The 15th -century Torres de Quart, Spain’s most magnificent city gate, faces towards Madrid and can be climbed (Calle de Guillem de Castro; 9.30am–6pm or 7pm Mon–Sat, 9.30am–3pm Sun; £1.70, Sun free).


Offering fantastic value for home -style Valencian cooking, this Barrio del Carmen restaurant has a regular coterie of customers. The set menus are cheap and delicious. Valencia is famed as the home of paella, so consider one of Yuso’s succulent rice dishes and fideuàs – similar to paellas, but with fine pasta (restauranteyuso. es; Calle de la Cruz 4; 1pm– 5.30pm & 8.30pm–1am Fri–Sat, 1pm–5.30pm Sun; mains from £7).
