The basics

In contrast to the narrow streets and ancient buildings of Valencia’s Old Town, the Town Hall Square (Plaza del Ayuntamiento in Spanish) is a wide open space lined with grand buildings and decorated with flowers, green lawns, and an impressive fountain. The square was traditionally the home of Valencia’s flower sellers, and there are still several in operation here.

Two buildings of note are the impressive town hall itself the post office buildings, both designed in neoclassical style by architect Miguel Angel Navarro between 1915 and 1922. You can learn more about the city’s architecture with a guided walking or bike tour that takes in key sites, or expand your love for all things Spanish with a cooking class or wine tasting activity.
