El Carmen

El Carmen is the historic centre of Valencia. Small streets to get lost and live the purest Valencian vibe. The Plaza de la Virgen, the Plaza Redonda, Torres de Serrano, there are just so many things to see. Also, an amazing place to go out at night and have some drinks.

El Carmen

Mercado de Colón (Colon Market)

  • Ideal place to have a coffee after strolling around the area. If going early in the morning, it is possible to have a typical Spanish breakfast (toast with tomato, coffee and orange juice) for less than 5€. If visiting later during the day, it is also possible to have a tapa and/or a glass of wine. Inside, it is also possible to find the Horchaterías serving horchata (the typical product from Valencia that it is similar to milk).
  • Market built between 1914 and 1916

El Carmen

Plaza Redonda

  • It is located near Plaza del Ayuntamiento, Mercado Central and Plaza de la Reina in the neighborhood of El Carmen.
  • The Plaza Redonda (which means Round Square) has obviously a circle shape. With 4 entries, the square can only be accessed by pedestrians (no cars are allowed there). In fact, it is so small (one of the smallest squares in the city) that there is no physical space for cars. The square is surrounded by houses, making it impossible to locate it from far away. The square has a round fountain in the center.
