Sorry, Pavlemadrid.... I hate locking threads but it is probably the only way to get people to
adhere to the rule of crediting where the photos came from. For instance, if these are your own, this thread should have been started in Urban Showcase. Read the rules, and pm me when you are ready to credit the photos . Then I will unlock it. Thank you.

Very nice shots. Valencia is such an underrated city in the shadow of Barcelona and Madrid. The old town looks really gorgeous.
Do you know what this square is called?

Well, for me there are more spanish cities more prettys that Valencia.... Valencia is georgeus but many others are more beautiful for me.... isn't very famous the old town of Valencia.... I went to say that the historic zone isn't the 3ª best after Madrid & Barcelona....
The most spanish cities are very prettys.... I think that the most in the EU are prettys...
In Spain there are very very different cities, Córdoba & Santiago de Compostela are.... uff... amazing differents....

The square is: "Plaza del Ayuntamiento" (Town hall square). Is the
It is the largest or one of the 2 main squares of Valencia, we can say: "The nerve centre". But the oldest zone isn't there....

PD: Can you write "Photo by Pavlemadrid"? Thanks!

You must also know a couple of new things: Valencia is recently well known because of the America´s Cup 2007 event, wich is considered the most important sailing race in the world. there will be another America´s Cup event in 2009. Next week, the Indoor Athletism World Championship will take place at the City Velodrome (wich has been prepared to this sort of sports) and the most important event of the year will be celebrated on the 24th August 2008; the F-1 Europe GRand Prix, with an urban race track surrounding the harbour area and the America´s Cup port.

PD: Don´t forget our local festivity, the Fallas , from the 15-19 march, the most important and traditional festival of fire, pyrotechnia, colour,sound and art in the whole world!!
