Valencia (Calle Poeta Querol/ Calle de la Paz, 48/Plaza de la Reina, 19)

Since ancient times, Valencia has been known for its radiant Light, maritime spirit and fertile soil. The city is located on an extensive coastal plain, and boasts 800.000 inhabitants. It is the communications, cultural, social and business centre servicing a metropolitan area of one-and-a-half million people.

Mediterranean by nature, Valencia is lively at play, and dynamic at work, in business, and in economic growth.

Here you can see relics of Roman, Visigoth and Islamic cultures, as well as notable examples of all styles of art and culture. The last years of the 20th century brought modern infrastructures in communications, finance, culture, science and leisure, making Valencia one of the outstanding cities of Spain and Europe.

Over the last years, the city has shown its splendour to the world as the host of major international events such as the Global Champions Tour, the America’s Cup regattas and the F1 European Grand Prix.
