Home of the Paella.
The gay area is concentrated around the old town, in the Barrio del Carmen.
Paella is designed not just as a meal, but also for social gathering. You sit with friends and dish it onto your plate a little at a time and while you’re in conversation, you open the shrimp, fork out the mollusks, lick your (or his) fingers etc. Too messy to pick up your mobile phone. (They cracked it!)
It is also home to the spectacular City of Arts & sciences, Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències. But as well as the futuristic architecture, Valencia is rich in historic Roman and Arabic architecture.
Valencia holds a Gay Pride every year. Unfortunately, they are the worst at announcing its date and don’t have a web site nor Facebook page for it.
