PART VII
Los Jardines Glorieta & Los Jardines Parterre

We end the tour of central Valencia in these lovely, airing two squares near where I began. They provide a good deal of shade between a set of busy thoroughfares through the city.

Valencia is not a very touristic city in Spain, most of spanish people don't see it as a cultural touristic destiny, but i really loved the city, has a big heritage, very beautiful buildings, nice gardens... one of my favourite cities, over Barcelona and Madrid IMHO (that's only my personal opinion).

well it's quite touristic actually, I think it just doesn't have the reputation of being beautiful (when it surely is).

Great pictures, so many details, thank you!

It certainly is less touristy than as you say, Madrid and Barcelona but I think that will change over coming years, especially considering its proximity to many seaside resorts up and down the coast.

Seems like a really good place to live! For Swedes it is one of the most popular places to go and move to in Spain, together with Barcelona and Alicante. I will go to Madrid in a few weeks, but next time I really have to visit Valencia!

Oh definitely, well worth a visit. I can understand why Valencia is possible, apart from it being devoid of too many Brits haha. Have a great trip!

Thank you. It's a city to be proud of, and it certainly looked like there was a lot of development going on! Regarding your pictures, I'm very happy for you to post them in here but if you could wait until after the final update, that would be perfect!

No problem. It just helps keep the consistency of the thread going if your pictures come after the last update, especially as some of them show places I haven't yet showed in my updates.
