The tour of the old town has a lot to offer
Valencia vibrates with life and vitality, people love to eat tapas and drink outdoors while enjoying the spectacular views of buildings that have seen the passing of the centuries.
The founders of the city were the Romans, who settled in Valencia in 138 BC. They called the place "Valentia". As we drive through the narrow streets of the city, you will agree that there could not be a better name for this energetic and vital city.
While the Romans ruled, the city was only a fraction of what it is now, but we can still admire some of the wonders that are preserved in Valencia.
The Visigoths followed the Romans and after them came the Arabs and their gastronomy. They brought their culture to the city; their artistic influences are still tangible in the old town of Valencia.In 1238, King James I, who has his own statue, conquered Valencia. From then until today Valencia is a Christian city, but with strong Roman, Visigothic and Arabic roots. It is beautiful to discover the city on wheels and fortunately Pelican Tours offers you a great variety of vehicles.
Why is the old town of Valencia so charming?
Pelican Tours will show you many of the most iconic monuments on this tour. We will see an example of excellent gothic architecture, the Puerta de los Serranos. Its construction began in 1392 and was built to protect the city. In 1865, the city walls were demolished, but the Serranos Gate was saved and used as a prison. That gate will not make us prisoners, as we still have much to discover as we tour Valencia.
Right in the heart of Valencia's old town, we will find the charming Plaza de la Virgen, which was built by the Romans who first inhabited the city. It is surrounded by the most symbolic buildings of Valencia, such as the Cathedral, the Basilica of the Virgen de los Desamparados and the Palace of the Generalitat. With the picturesque fountain in the center of the square, it is the perfect place to pause and share the most beautiful photos of the city.
Another charm of the city is the Central Market and Pelican Bikes will take you to this beautiful and busy building. The Central Market of Valencia, with its more than 1200 stores, is one of the largest in Europe (covered). The beautifully colored window panels let in light and illuminate the stalls of vendors selling food, souvenirs and other useful goods.If you have any special requests, please let us know.
