Ever wondered why Valencia wears orange?
While the birds are chirping in the warm city squares, we will start our walk from the Plaza Redonda, a former marketplace for messenger pigeons.
Discover why Valencia was known as the bread basket of Spain. Accompanied by an expert guide we will travel through centuries to see how Valencia developed to become the inviting and abundant city that it is today.
Paraphrasing the words of Gaspar Aguilar describing the Albufera lake, then a royal hunting reserve: The air could not hold all the birds nor could the waters contain all the fish. Nowadays, the lake is a peaceful site for fishermen and visitors, where you can get away from the noises and stress of city life and reconnect with nature.
A trip by boat on the Albufera Lake 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 fishermen used to live their lives.
It is recommended to come 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time at the Plaza Redonda.
You can expect to disconnect with your daily life, to learn the fascinating world of growing fruits and food. You will have a mixture of an urban walk and a cruise through the rural belt outside the city. Experience the continuous agricultural growth of the city, thanks to the richness of its nature. In one day you will be both a farmer and a fisherman.
