Valencia´s bull ring is built as a compact brick cylinder, with four arch groups similar to the Roman Colisseum in Rome. It is possibly the first building in the city to use exposed iron, particularly in the columns that hold the steps. When it was built, the bullring had a capacity for 16,800 people, a number in accordance with the huge passion for bullfighting at that time in Valencia. Next to the bull ring is The Bullfighting Museum with a collection of memorabilia of this ancient sport.
The Central Market, built in 1928, is a fine example of Modernist architecture. This huge glass and metal structure houses an extremely busy morning market. The profusion of fruit and vegetables here is a good indication of the agricultural wealth of the huerta (irrigated plain). The region not only produces citrus fruits, using intensive methods, and rice, but also has a considerable amount of market gardening. You will see these two important monuments of Valencia on this private tour and take a walk through the streets of the old quarter.
