Decorated with a symmetrical grid of orange trees, the Plaza del Patriarca is home to a couple of Valencia’s most historic buildings: the Real Colegio Seminario del Corpus Christi and La Nau, both of which date from the 15th century.
There’s more than one major concert venue in the Turia park. About a kilometer away from the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, Valencia’s futuristic egg-shaped opera house, you’ll find the Palau de la Música. Built in 1987, the Palau focuses on classical music. It’s prized for its acoustics, and attracts orchestras and famous musicians from around the world.
