Interesting Sightseeing Spots through Valencia Excursions

Valencia is a vast region in Spain which has many beautiful spots for the tourists. It is not surprising to have thousands of tourists coming by Valencia every summer for many of the delightful sights offered in a myriad of excursion packages by professional tour operators.

An aerial view of Valencia showcases the region as a sparse and fertile land of greens. It is commonly known as “La Huerta” by the locals where as many as four harvests per year can be reaped with the wonderful weather conditions and rich land.

Excursion options

Valencia offers a plethora of interesting traditional houses that are inhabited by the locals who work the land. These locals are known as Barracas; they live in unique constructions of clay and rush roofs. The more majestic Alquerías manorial homes are also typical Valencian constructions with some gothic influence. One such example is the Alquería del Pi which is located in Burjasot. These unique abodes offer a taste of rich and ancient culture found in Valencia. Then, there are the rich rice plantations across Valencia at Sueca, Sollana and Cullera which reflect the golden color in autumn for a delightful ambience.

One of the popular excursions in Valencia is the visit to La Albufera which is a beautiful lake at the south of Valencia. This tourist spot allows some boating activities with a unique stop at some romantic local fishing villages such as Palmar which offers a most picturesque view of the region.

Sagunto is another favorite Valencia excursion choice with the presence of an ancient Roman theater that is very well conserved until this day. The other presence of an awesome medieval fortress makes this excursion most worthy of time and money.

Town delights

Valencia offers many interesting and quaint towns and cities for a visit. There are lots of ancient and rich historical spots which would thrill the tourists; these include Játiva which conserves its traditional manorial town ambience with an ancient fortress from the medieval era that reflects the best of Spanish history. There are ancient sections of old Iberian walls that reflect the past wars and glory of that place. Nearby is the unique Cova Negra which is one of the ancient pre-historical remains of Valencia.

Huelva is renowned for its fishing industry and active port. The city was made famous by Christopher Columbus who commenced his travels to the new land of America from Palos de la Frontera which is nearby. There exists a monastery where Columbus stayed during his pre-departure.
