 Valencia is full of beautiful buildings and churches, there are many squares were people meet for a chat,  a snack or just for a cool drink and watch the world go by you cannot help but relax in this atmosphere.

The Spanish way of life can even be seen in a large city such as Valencia.  There are numerous places to dine from a small tapas to an expensive meal with a bottle of very special wine.  The atmosphere is amazing mixing with the locals and tourist, you can of course tell the tourist a mile away.  You do not see any lager louts or loud mouth drunks around here. 

You get the feeling of an up-market city without the expensive costs that come with it.  It is a tiny bit more expensive than the normal Spanish towns and villages but it is worth it just to sample the ambience all around you. We had a meal with peices of steak you cook yourself on a hot stone with a huge salad to go with it and of course a selection of home-made bread.

This cost us less than 15 euros per person not bad for quality food and a high quality restauran

 

We also had a violinist to entertain us who was excellent. We finished with my favourite ice cream, wow that was delicious.  Most bars and restaurants get busy from 9pm and stay open till late.  The shops also stay open till late and of course there are lots of food places for take away open all night.  It also felt very safe to walk about, not like Madrid or Barcelona.

 

 

Hope you enjoy the video.

Valencia Science Centre (Las Ciencias).

We visited the Valancia science centre and what a wow factor it has even before you go in the door. It is in different parts, las Ciencias,Expeiencia UNICA,  Oceanografic, Hemesferic and a large museo, (museum). It took us nearly a full day to see just half of it so I would advise you to go early and drink lots of water. below is just some of the hundreds of photographs we took. Next week I will put videos on the blog to let you have an idea how big the centre is.

                  Unusual Restaurant

This must be the most unusual restaurant I have ever seen, the design and décor are amazing and although I have not eaten there as yet (booking soon to go) I hear the food is excellent with all kinds of food being offered from steaks to fish and of course paella.

It is not an inexpensive restaurant as far as Spanish restaurants go, but it is one of the high class restaurants that is not in one of the major cities.  It’s castle like design on the outside does not prepare you for what’s inside.  The sheer ambiance is of the place makes you look in amazement.
 Where did the designer get his idea from. I can’t make my mind up if it’s futuristic or medieval, perhaps part of both, the photographs do not do it justice as the lighting which changes can only be caught by the human eye .
