Valencia (map) is a charming old city and the capital of the Valencian Community, and the third-largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona.

In March visitors flock to the city for the annual UNESCO-listed Falles celebration, but the city is worth visiting at other times of year for its paella, ultramodern architecture, and good beaches.

This ultra-modern architectural complex on the former Turia riverbed was designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava and Spanish-Mexican architect Félix Candela.

Monestir de Sant Miquel dels Reis (Biblioteca Valenciana Nicolau Primitiu / Monastery of San Miguel de los Reyes, map).

In 1835 the monastery was dissolved and came under control of the state.

Banys de l’Almirall (Baños del Almirante / Almirante Muslim Baths, map). Although constructed in 1313 after the Christian reconquista, the bathhouse was built in the Arabic style and is considered to be an excellent example of Moorish architecture.
