It was a Sunday morning in Valencia and I sat at a café on the edge of the Plaza de la Virgen opposite the Cathedral with a cortado (an espresso with a shot of milk) and a croissant. It was my last day in Valencia and I thought of my visit to this fabulous city. Valencia has got so much going for it: a stunning medieval centre, an infectious big city vibe, cutting-edge architecture at the City of Arts & Sciences and gorgeous Art Nouveau architecture at the fringes of the old town, and the beaches! As I thought of the city’s assets, a group of gorgeous ladies donning traditional costumes walked by. They were on their way to the Cathedral. Someone asked them to stop on the square and pose and they obliged. What a beautiful sight!
