#2 Plaza Ayuntamiento
This city square contains the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall), which is open for tours. Many travel experts say the Plaza Ayuntamiento is a good place to start off any sightseeing, as the square is filled with decadent buildings raised during Valencia's golden age. In the square's center is a fountain, which is then surrounded by fragrant flower stalls. And if you're in a shopping frame of mind, simply turn off one of the square's side streets: Many of the city's best shops line the adjoining streets.
