This majestic building in Valencia's city centre boasts an impressive clock tower. The building's two annexes are joined and comprise the older 18th century “Teaching House” and a more recent 20th century construction which includes the facade onto the plaza outside.
The City Hall buildings are fascinating to visit, with grand marble staircase, municipal archives, a museum and administrative offices for the city of Valencia.
The square in front of City Hall - Plaza del Ayuntamiento - closes to traffic on the last Sunday of each month, so people can enjoy a stroll, markets and other special events.
TIP! Visit the City Hall in the evening for some great photo opportunities with the illuminated fountain outside on the plaza.
