Imagine a sun-filled square surrounded by gorgeous old buildings and churches, as well as a glorious fountain in the center - that is was Plaza de la Virgen is (also known as Plaça de la Mare de Déu in Valencian). A beautiful place to come by yourself with a book or meet friends. I also went on a free walking tour that started here.

This is one of the oldest squares in the city of Valencia. It is near three main sights in the city, and because of this it often gets very crowded during the day. It's worth a visit at night time, where the tourists are fewer and the square is beautifully illuminated. The main thing to see in this square is the elaborate fountain of Neptune, surrounded by eight women. There are many good cafes nearby too which are great to rest in and people watch.

The Cathedral of Santa Maria, Basílica de la Virgen de los Desamparados and Palace of the Generalitat make up the beautiful surroundings of the Plaza. There are lots of cafes and restaurants serving amazing local food. A great place to rest and take in the views.

This is a central place of Valencia, located in front of the Cathedral. Many important ceremonies take place in this place, especially during Easter time and the Fallas festival. A monumental Virgin Mary is constructed there, which is made of flowers offered by Falleros. Also, there is a rather ugly fountain representing Valencian rivers, a typical Valencian meeting place. There are restaurants and bars and during the evening many street artists like to perform there.

Esta plaza-peatonal es el corazón de Valencia. El punto de encuentro de los Tours por la ciudad. Según cuentan, es el lugar desde donde se empezó a edificar Valencia.

Esta rodeada de la Catedral, la Basílica de la Virgen de los Desamparados y El Palacio de la Generalitat Valenciana.

En el centro de la misma se encuenta la Fuente de Turia. Muy bonita con su estatua.

Playa de Gandia, Spain

Rodeado de la Catedral de Santa María y la Basílica de la Virgen de los Desamparados, es una de las plazas mas bonitas de España. En el centro de la plaza la Fuente del Turia cuenta con unos hermosos detalles. Esta plaza significa mucho para los valencianos porque en la época de las Fallas se realiza la ofrenda de flores a la Virgen, un espectáculo que no te podes perder si has viajado para ver la fiesta.
