Valencia had been very high on my list for years before we arrived for a couple nights a couple years ago. The word on the street was that it was “laid back and chill” compared to its famous Catalan neighbor Barcelona, and that’s definitely true.
It’s funny, because when we look back at our travels, we don’t really remember Valencia as being a big highlight of things, but we definitely had one of the best meals we’ve had in our lives there and when I look back through pictures, there’s no doubt it’s a pretty place full of things worth taking pictures of.
Things like the Turia Fountain for example.
I took this picture of the Turia Fountain basking in the late evening summer sun and if you didn’t know any better, you might think it was shot in Rome or something. There was no water running at the time, but I’ve been assured it is indeed a fountain.
Oh yeah, if you click on it, I think it gets bigger.
