    A beautifully maintained Botanical Garden, in the middle of the city. Instructive. In warm weather, perfect to. A lot of shade. Access is paying: always ask if you are entitled to reduction (the elderly, students, ...). Is not indicated. You have to explicitly ask.

    Fantastic garden with plants from orchids to various bamboos in myriad types of Succulents, all surrounded by wild cats that you don't get too close but seek the shade to rest from the heat.

  • Nice place for nice price. You can walk a little bit around or you can just bring your book and sit on one of many benches and enjoy this green and calm place. It's not the biggest botanical garden but you can find many interesting plants there.
  • Oasis of rest in valencia. Very well kept garden allowing you to explore many different types of flora. An advisable visit!
  • Surprisingly wide variety of plants, feels very relaxing especially on a hot day. We enjoyed it a lot. Entrance is 2.50 euro and the ticket can be used whole day.
  • Beautiful garden with interesting artworks. Definitely go if you love cats, there's over 30 really friendly ones that get fed and taken care of by volunteers every day!
  • Nice and tranquil as any other botanic garden. Looks a bit run down every now and again. The plantsigns are curiously non informative only signalling the scientific name of the species. Worth a visit.

Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.
