The Shopping Avenues and the Bulls’ Square
Visiting the city center will be simple and smart. Great palaces extend between the Carrer de Xativa and the Grande via del Marques de Sotelo; you’ll feel immensely small whle crossing them and observing their brightness, especially during sunset, when everything turns yellow and orange, in a splendid setting that only in recent years has known a great development due to the works of architect Santiango Calatrava. It’s almost impossible to take the eyes off the thousand colorful shop windows, especially if you’re a shopping lover.
And yet a first obligatory stop is the Plaça des Bous (Bulls square), where an imposing arena rises. Till now, although often considered a bloody spectacle and not shared by many persons, it’s possible to watch a corrida, which remains, despite everything, a faithful tradition.
