La Lonja de la Seda

If you only manage to see one sight while in Valencia, it has to be La Lonja, the old silk exchange. It is heralded as one of the foremost Gothic buildings in Europe, and in 1996, it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The actual market is the size of a cathedral, covering 21,420 square feet.

Do & See

Many of Valencia’s main attractions can be found within its old quarter, a compact area around the Cathedral which is best explored on foot or by bike. Buy a Valencia Tourist Card of 24, 48 or 72 hours to get discounts at monuments and museums and free transport to reach some of the other key areas of the city.
