RENT BICYCLES IN VALENCIA TO GO THROUGH THE HISTORICAL CENTER
After rent bicycles in Valencia Bikes at number 14 Tapineria Street, we suggest you start your route at a point of the city center like Torres de Serranos to enter in the Carmen and discover the historical Valencia. In addition to the obligatory visits to the Cathedral, the Silk Market or the Central Market, we recommend those other wonders that sometimes go unnoticed by the tourist, such as the Santa Catalina church in Baroque style with its famous bell tower presiding over the end of La Paz street, one of the most noble streets of Valencia where we advise you to go pedaling slowly to contemplate the architectural beauty of the facades of the buildings.
In the surroundings of Santa Catalina you´ll find the Redonda Square, a picturesque corner of Valencia, once an open-air market. It stands out because it is a perfect circumference, one of the few urban squares in the world having this form. Animals are not sold there now as they used to a long time ago, but you can sit down at some of its bars to drink a fresh horchata or to taste some of the typical Spanish tapas. If you like ice creams, in Plaza de la Reina you will find an ice cream parlor that got the Guiness record in flavors, with flavors as weird as salmon ice cream, potato omelette or fabada.
