Introduction

Valencia´s bull ring is Located next to the North railway station the bullring is a neoclassic design by Sebastián Monleón Estellés, built between 1850 and 1860 on the site of an unfinished plaza. It is 17.65 metres high and the ring itself is 52 metres in diameter. There are four levels decorated with an array of differing brick arches and wooden balustrades. Inside there are 24 rows in the stands. The main events take place during las Fallas and the July Fair.

The Mercado Central or Central Market of Valencia is one of the oldest markets still in use in Europe and has been declared a ''Heritage of Cultural Interest'' site by the Spanish Ministry of Culture. It was inaugurated in the course of 1928 and decades later, in 2010, it was completely renovated. It's a popular spot among tourists as well as locals, as it’s the perfect location to immerse yourself in the heart of local culture and to get lost in its numerous aisles filled with local products. It's a must-see on your holiday in Valencia.

The building is situated in the heart of Ciutat Vella, the historic city centre of Valencia, which is very close to several tourist attractions and numerous shops, bars and restaurants. The modernist building style is impressive to say the least and is a beautiful example of 20th-century architecture. The impressive 8,160 square metre structure is home to 900 stands, selling some of the area's freshest and finest food. Local legend has it that there has actually been a market of some sorts on this very site since about the 14th century.
