“So much to do”

You can go to the top of the old gate where bows and arrows were shot. You can also shop or stop and get an espresso or coffee. Tge views are amazing!

“Great place to get lost for an evening.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

You can only really know Valencia after you have wandered round the Carmen district looking at all the great independent shops and stopped off for tapas, ice cream, horchata or (lunchtime only!) paella. There is also some fantastic architecture here and history around every corner. The downside for some is that graffiti is common. However, there is some artistic and funny stuff here if you look around as well as the mindless stuff you find in every city. One warning: wandering around in March is not for those of a nervous disposition. Everyone has firecrackers (big ones!) and the boom in the narrow and echoing streets can be startling. Any other time and it's simply delightful!

“Old part of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

I love the old part of town, with all the restored old buildings, very clean and lots of tapas bars to meander around.

“Beautiful, little-known central area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

Worth getting lost in. A maze of little streets, curious shops, pedestrian squares. Most has avoided over-gentrification. Good for walking or biking. Relatively small so can be nicely explored in an afternoon.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

El Carmen is one of the biggest old town districts in Europe, and it makes it a great place to visit - the number of quiet streets, old churches, charming squares, good restaurants and museums makes El Casco Antiguo a perfect place to visit if you want to see the real Mediterranean city atmosphere.
