It is a city that has seen some dramatic events over the years and has many fascinating historical sites. With incredible architecture, great museums and galleries and peaceful parks, there is more than enough to keep visitors happy.

Accessible getaways abroad: Accessible Valencia

The Romans founded Valencia originally as a kind of retirement home for their bravest warriors. And it’s not hard to see why plenty of people would have fought hard to try and end up here.
