Valencia, located on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, just in front of the Balearic Islands, is a medium-sized city with a population of about 800,000 inhabitants.
Since the city was first founded by the Romans in the year 138 B. C., Valencia has accumulated the great wealth contributed by all the different cultures that have lived there (the Visigoths, the Muslims…). Taking a stroll through Valencia is feeling the plural development of a city in which the legacies of its prosperous history co- exist peacefully alongside the most modern and innovative constructions. Walking through the historical quarter, seeing religious temples and civil monuments with their Gothic; Baroque and Modernist architecture, stopping to visit its famous museums or admire projects as emblematic as the City of Arts and Sciences or the Palace of Congresses are just a few of the many options Valencia offers to visitors.

It has also become a relevant European congress centre and a first-class point of encounter for all those who wish to develop their businesses or take part in its trade fairs. Valencia is a cosmopolitan city, an ideal historic site for trading activities and cultural exchange.
