Travel Blogs from Valencia
We have never really explored the section of coast between Calpe and Tarragona so we headed back down to the coast to Valencia. It is an interesting city which has had a number of make overs. Back in the mid 1950's the river Turia flooded the city badly. With much determination the city decided to divert the river from its present course. This was no small job as the river is almost as big as the Thames. We're not sure how long it took but the city was then left ...
