Why Valencia?

Valencia, the ideal place

Valencia is one of those special places where you can fulfil your professional and vital projects. Valencia unites a top quality of life with a moderate cost of living, making it the perfect city to develop new ideas and projects, where talent is born and attracted to develop their lives alongside the Mediterranean Sea.

With 300 sunny days a year and an average annual temperature of almost 18º C; a worldwide renowned traditional cuisine; over 7 km of beaches; and a Mediterranean lifestyle that combines tradition and innovation, Valencia is an exceptional city to live in. A city with a history of more than 2,000 years, where La Lonja de la Seda (declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site), La Almoina, the Serrano Towers, the Quart Towers, or the Cathedral of Valencia, coexist with buildings of the 21st century such as the City of Arts and Sciences by Santiago Calatrava, the Congress Centre by Norman Foster, and the Veles e Vents building by David Chipperfield.

A green city committed to the environment, where you can find the old course of the Turia River that crosses the city and discover that it is a 9 kilometre lush garden dedicated to leisure and sports.

A city that always has something to celebrate. In particular, from 15 to 19 March, the city focuses on the celebration of the Fallas (declared an Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO) where noise, music, gunpowder, colour and wit are the key elements of our festivities.

The city has an extensive network of travel connections, including an airport that is directly connected to more than 70 international destinations such as London, Berlin, Paris, Dublin, Rome, Brussels, Lisbon, Frankfurt, etc. In addition, you can reach Madrid in just an hour and a half by taking the high-speed train.
