Valencia is a synonym for the world famous rice dish Paella. Its bright yellow colour comes from a small pinch of saffron. A delicious and satisfying meal filled with chicken, rabbit and fresh local vegetables. If you prefer, try the seafood version of the traditional recipe. Almost every restaurant in town will have it on the menu.
Visit the cool oasis of the Gothic cathedral and explore the labyrinth of narrow, atmospheric streets in the area. Not far away is the central market, crowded with wonderful local produce. Perhaps you can get the ingredients for a picnic and enjoy it in the nearby botanical gardens.
