Valencia, Calpe and Benidorm
During the last few years, the city of Valencia has been rediscovered. Filled with treasures, though unknown to many, Valencia has begun to regain its importance as a Mediterranean Capital, along with Barcelona. Originally built by the Romans, for centuries Valencia’s walls have traced the river bed of the Turia.
Valencia, Calpe and Benidorm 5th to 8th October 2017
Over the last few years, the city, surrounded by lush green lands, has grown towards the sea, integrating nearby villages to form a varied and complex territory, maintaining a careful contrast between history and modernity. The City of Arts and Science, by Valencia architect Santiago Calatrava, and new urban strategies, have thrust Valencia into the international limelight; restoring well deserved attention to the historic buildings and streets of the Mediterranean city.
At its heart, the city is undergoing substantial modifications: the transformation of the Turia River into one of the largest linear urban parks in Europe, the integral renovation of the Historic District, the planning of the Waterfront and the expected restoration of modern sea villages. These are, among others, evidence of the appealing opportunities for not only architects and urban planners, but visitors and inhabitants of Valencia.
