  • Great tourist destination, but city authorities should do something with pigeons sitting (and not only sitting) on the Neptune's sculpture, as well as with the wires hanging over the square, that destroy each picture taken here.
  • A lovely view in every direction with a fountain in the middle. A great meeting place for locals and tourists alike.
  • Good place to enjoy your beer & food with a decent view. Tried Cafe & Tapas and it was good
  • Beautiful square.......specially during Fallas a must visit place. The statue of Mother Mary decorated with white flowers. She look very beautiful.
  • Beautiful square in the heart of the historic city center; a "meeting point" of such famous touristic attractions as: The Cathedral of Valencia, The Basilica of the Virgen, The Fountain of Turia. This area is a "Must See" in Valencia as well as the area around it.

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.
