#LAMARCAESCAPES Valencia by Marta Ortiz

"Valencia is known for its beautiful beaches, the paella and 'Las Fallas', our traditional festivities which we celebrate once a year, and we basically burn the city down." Marta Ortiz, a Spanish model and native of Valencia shares with us in this wellness guide the beautiful city from a different point of view. "I grew up in Valencia, surrounded by the smell of orange blossom and gunpowder," mentions Marta.

This city is a quick train or drive away from Madrid, making it an easy and ideal seaside escape.

WHAT TO DO: Valencia has great weather and everything is quite close to each other. The best thing to do is to rent a bike and cruise around the old part of the town and try out the horchata.

WHERE TO EAT: You can’t leave Valencia without trying out the paella or the horchata, our traditional drink. Here’s a couple places you can’t miss!


WHERE TO SHOP: Valencia is well known for its artisans. When cruising around the old part of the city, just lose yourself and discover hundreds of little shops where you will find baskets and made in Spain products. But if you also want to shop luxury items you can’t miss out on these stores!


WHY I LOVE IT: This is my hometown. I grew up surrounded by the smell of orange blossom and gunpowder.  It’s known for its beautiful beaches, the paella and "las Fallas", where we basically burn the city down. The weather in Valencia is great and everything is quite close to each other, so you can cruise around in a bike. There are many beautiful artisanal shops where you can find “Made in Spain” baskets and products. You must try the paella and the horchata!
