This week in PLANABOUT we will talk about the city you've chosen to enjoy your holidays in, Valencia.
Valencia is a city you can lose yourself in... by enjoying the atmosphere of its streets, the color of its sky, and of course, the shops and spaces that hide in its urban districts beyond the City of Arts and Sciences or some of its best-known monuments.
Today, with this post, we will start a guide to the best places of leisure and culture in Valencia, places that will capture your fancy without a doubt.
Columbus Market. It’s a classic, but that’s not why this is a place not to miss. The old modernist market located in one of the districts of Valencia has been converted into an attractive space in which to eat, drink an horchata, or buy food in its gourmet market.
Cosin. In an open and avant-garde space, designer Pepe Cosín features internationally-known brands, from Zanotta to MDF, including Moormann, Vondom and Moroso.
