Just 11 km away from the hustle and bustle of Valencia city, we have this extraordinary huge park, considered by the Valencians , one of the most beautiful spots in the city, as it is connected through three canals to the Mediterranean Sea.
Great place to go if you want to get out of the city for a bit. Huge lagoon which is the source of Valencia's rice paddies and where Paella was first created. Great to go to one of the famous paella restaurants around there and then take a boat trip on the Albufera.
A tan solo 15 minutos del centro de Valencia se encuentra uno de los enclaves naturales más importante de Europa: El Parque Natural de la Albufera. Atardeceres sublimes. Valencia’s Albufera Natural Park The park is home to the largest lake in Spain and one of the most important wetland areas in the Iberian Peninsula. It is a place of great ecological interest with rare species of wading birds and a rich variety of wildlife. Its waters have been traditionally worked by fishermen and rice growers, supplying ingredients and inspiration for many of the regions most succulent dishes. To sample the best of the local gastronomy, go to the village of El Palmar, a setting for many of the works of Blasco Ibáñez. It is an excellent place to try classic dishes such as Paella, Arroz a Banda, or All i Pebre made with eels freshly caught from the lake. After the meal, there is nothing more relaxing than a boat trip on the Albufera lake contemplating the red and amber tones of the setting sun dancing across the water. HOW TO GET THERE You can get there by taking the number 25 bus, run by the municipal transport company EMT. These buses will take you to El Palmar and El Perellonet from Valencia city centre in under an hour, for just €1.50 each way. Get off at the Embarcadero or El Palmar bus stops to enjoy a boat trip across Albufera lake on a traditional boat.
