The Barrio del Carmen, located in the Ciutat Vella district, is the historical and cultural heart of Valencia. Its narrow, cobblestone streets, with colorful facades and artistic murals, are a labyrinth full of history and charm. Here you will find a mix of bohemian shops, art galleries, tapas bars, and restaurants serving everything from authentic Valencian paella to modern fusion cuisine.
In this neighborhood, do not miss the Plaza del Carmen, where the Convento del Carmen is located, now converted into a cultural center that hosts contemporary art exhibitions. Near here, you can stroll through the Portal de Valldigna, an arch that was the entrance to the city’s Moorish neighborhood. And if you are looking for nightlife, the Barrio del Carmen is famous for its bars and clubs, where you can dance until dawn.
