Should I stop by Valencia on my way to Barcelona?

I have 6 full days in Spain. I am flying into Madrid And flying out of Barcelona. Was thinking to spend 2 nights in Madrid , take a train to Valencia for one night and continue to Barcelona for 3 nights

Is it a good plan? I want to see as much of Spain as I can.

Your thoughts are appreciated

A short visit to Valencia is certainly recommended but be warned, you will be back for a longer stay.

Madrid Barcelona and Valencia are Spain's 3 largest cities and you really need much more time to appreciate more of what they have to offer.

Your short stay will give you a good introduction for a future longer visit .

Definitely see Valencia. See the aquarium at the City of Arts and Sciences. I have seen it 3 times already and never tire seeing it. It is the best aquarium in Spain.

If you decide to go to Valencia I would concentrate on seeing the historic centre as it's compact and easy to see the main sights in a short period of time. You could spend a day or more at the City of Arts and Sciences and see little of the city itself. It is also in easy reach of the train stations.
