For lovers of architecture, there are a number of buildings in the city that you won’t want to miss. The Gothic styles of the Valencia Cathedral and the La Lonja de la Seda de Valencia (the old silk exchange building which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site) draw large crowds. The area opposite this is the bustling Mercado central, still a thriving marketplace despite being one of the oldest in Europe. Also in the Gothic style, the Palacio Del Marques De Dos Aguas is a former palace with Baroque additions, including a beautifully detailed entrance.
There are also a wide range of museums in the city that cater for all tastes. The Museo de Bellas Artes (Museum of Fine Arts) is a spectacular Baroque building housing art dating from the 14th to the 19th centuries. In contrast, Spain's first centre for modern art, the Institut Valencià d'Art Modern is home to a diverse mixture of installations and pieces from more contemporary times.
The City of Arts and Sciences is a breath-taking collection of modern buildings housing an IMAX cinema, a variety of art and science exhibitions and theatres including a Planetarium and a Marine Park!
