DESTINATION – VALENCIA, SPAIN

Welcome to Valencia, Spain!

I just want to share our current adventure to everyone as we take a short break after a hectic 1st part of our wedding season. We travel to Europe and are exploring a few of our favorite destinations photographically. First is Valencia, Spain – the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona. Valencia was founded as a Roman colony in 138 BC. The city is situated on the banks of the Turia, on the east coast of the Iberian Peninsula, fronting the Gulf of Valencia on the Mediterranean Sea.

While in Valencia we visited a few of the important historical land marks of the city. First is the Valencia Cathedral, the home to the mythical Holy Grail (believed to be the chalice where Jesus drank of during the last supper) for over 500 years.
