On our tour of discovery of kitchen countertops – and more – we spent a few days in the lovely city of Valencia.

Valencia was a niche destination until the Americas Cup made it a renowned holiday destination offering a unique blend of history and modern architecture.

Our travel log includes not only the Espacio Cocina – SICI trade fair but a visit to the “Ciutat de Les Arts I Les Ciènces”, the City of Arts and Sciences by architect Santiago Calatrava, a symbol of Valencia’s aesthetic and cultural renewal.

The truly futuristic 350,000 square metre complex was built in what used to be the bed of the Turia River, where families and students can enjoy a fun, spectacular approach to the world of science and art.

The complex includes buildings and areas of different styles and structures: El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía L'Hemisfèric,L'Umbracle, El Museu de les Ciències Príncipe Felipe, L'Oceanogràfic, Ágora and Assud D’Or Bridge.

At the end of our walk, we sampled the paella at La Pepica, a restaurant that has been open for more than a century and specialises in traditional Valencian dishes.

Generous portions, appetising seafood, bright colours and rich, fresh flavours made it a memorable evening.
