At the heart of Valencia town center is Plaza del Ayuntamiento (Town Hall Square).
This lovely square is not far from Estaciòn del Norte (the main train station), next to the bullring and opposite the station is Xativa metro station. The area is surrounded by shops, restaurants, theatres, art galleries and museums and not far away is the old historical town and Calle Colón, which is great for shopping.

The Seu-Xerea barrrio (Cathedral neighborhood), is only a few square miles, so very easy to explore on foot. Just off the Plaza de la Virgin is the trendy and fashionable Barrio del Carmen.
Overflowing with the freshest of fruits, veggies and salads and other produce, this is the place to stock up with food and there are many tapas bars and restaurants in the area.
