Port (Puerto) Amerioa's Cup - Valencia, Spain

Valencia has the second busiest commercial port in Europe, and sea-trade has always been a huge part of the city's life. The port is part of what Valencia is.

However, now more than ever, the port is the real emblem of today's Valencia, the metaphore for the City of Contrasts, where the past and the future have come to meet. Many travellers never discover the Port for themselves and those that do are surprised it is not covered in the tourist literature.

The Old Port is an atmospheric, sleepy complex of traditional ship yards built in the typical Valencian style. Dominated by the charming Clock Building (Edificio del Reloj) it transports you to the nostalgia of the turn of the XX century Valencia, self-contained and secluded within its own culture.

The newest addition - the America's Cup Port - is a magnificent futuristic project in the style of Calatrava (the architect of City of Arts and Sciences) - the emblem of New Valencia: a cosmopolitan city firmly on the map of Europe. There is more information on the America's Cup Port infrastructure in the America's Cup section.

It is generally a pleasant area for a promenade. Apart from the architecture there are great views onto the docks, the sea and the beach, as well as modern bars and restaurants.

You could also combine it with a visit to the nearby Gothic Shipyards, the Church of Santa Maria del Mar, unique architecture in Calle de la Reina, the best paella in Spain on the adjacent end of the beach, or simply with some beach time.
