Old Town and historic sights

Valencia Central Market

The Central Market is a display of Valencia's modernist architecture. With construction dating back to 1914, the building has been recently refurbished, displaying an impressive entry and colourful ceramic tiles.

Enjoy a guided visit to the market with a local chef on our Valencia Paella Cooking Class.

Apart from the Central Market's undisputed aesthetic value, the variety and quality of produce is impressive. A rich variety of fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, seafood and meat, are found along with many other gourmet products.

The market is bright, colourful and full of aromas and flavours. Sellers allow buyers to try products before buying. You can also find cafes and tapas bars right on the entry staircase.

TIP! Buy a few grammes of delicious Iberian ham at one of the gourmet stalls and check out the live eels.
