El Carmen

Plaza Redonda

  • It is located near Plaza del Ayuntamiento, Mercado Central and Plaza de la Reina in the neighborhood of El Carmen.

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.

Mercado de Ruzafa (Market)

  • Origin of Ruzafa comes from a leisure estate built by Abd Allah Al-Balansi in the IX century at about 2 km from the city of Valencia.
