Tour Details

A half-day tour into Nature

While the birds are chirping in the warm city squares, we will start our walking tour from the Plaza Redonda, a former marketplace for messenger pigeons.
Discover with this themed tour why Valencia was known as the breadbasket of Spain. Accompanied by an expert guide, we will travel through centuries to see how Valencia flourished to become the welcoming and abundant city that it is today.

Paraphrasing the words of Gaspar Aguilar describing the Albufera Lagoon, then a royal hunting reserve: “The air could not hold all the birds nor could the waters contain all the fish”. Nowadays, the lagoon is a peaceful site for fishers and visitors, where you can get away from the noises and stress of daily city life and reconnect with Nature.
A trip by boat through on the Albufera Lagoon will allow us to see some birds and fish and enjoy the breeze on our face. The barracas thatched adobe houses that we will see along the lake will remind us of the way the local fishers used to live their lives in what today is a Natural Park.
