Valencia’s Eixample district is a modern city center. This neighborhood includes the city’s most popular shopping street, Calle Colon, as well as Marques del Turia Avenue and Russafa.
It is also the most important commercial district, with popular department stores and shops. Furthermore, it is close to important landmarks such as the Mercado de Colón, the City Hall, Calle Paz, and others. It also has excellent public transportation connectivity.
Long straight streets, a strict grid pattern intersected by wide avenues, and square blocks with chamfered corners define the Eixample.
The Bullring, the center of Valencia’s bull fighting, is one of its main attractions. It was constructed in 1841. It is a large, impressive structure designed in the style of a Roman Coliseum but with Doric ornamentation. It is much larger as a whole, with four levels of colonnades and balustrades, than the ring itself, which measures 52 m in diameter.
The interior is only accessible through the Bullfighting Museum. When there are no bullfights, the bullring hosts fairs, concerts, or even a circus and then closes for the rest of the year.
The North Station (Estación del Norte) is the inner city railway station, located 200 meters from the town hall, and connects to Metrovalencia lines 3 and 5, as well as the city bus network.
It was built in 1917 with Neo-Gothic influences, and it houses an entire caleidoscope of typically Valencian mosaics and ceramics on the themes of Valencian countryside, providing a glimpse into the local culture. In 1987, it was designated as a Cultural Heritage site. The railway station is designed in the modernisme style (the Spanish version of Art Nouveau).
Another well-known attraction is the Mercado de Colón. A stunning elaborate structure, spacious modernity, somewhat simplified a la-Valencia Gaudi, with a nave shooting into the sky and colorful decorations depicting Valencian country life with Valencian ceramics.
The architecture is so intriguing that it’s hard to believe the market was built in 1914; it was quite avant-garde for the time.
