    Valencia

    April 11, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Today we drove up to València via Alicante, didn’t see anything in Alicante except high-rise buildings and beaches, but as windy beaches not looking good. València is lovely and the people are very understanding especially the commercial port police. While following the iPod GPS directions we managed to get ourselves to the entrance of the commercial port with all the container trucks, the guy manning the entrance was really sweet he showed us where to u-turn and told us how to get back to town. After we managed to find the apartment and car park we went for a walk around the old town here are some photos. We saw a cute little red squirrel in the gardens that now grow in what was the old river route, the cathedral and basilica. We also visited the Plaza Rotunda (the round square), the Centre Del Carme Cultura Contemporania, an old monastery which was interesting for the architecture and the display of work by Okuda San Miguel very colourful. Photo of type of thing attached. Will be more info and photos tomorrow.Read more
