IVAM is the Valencian Institute of Modern Art, a must for all contemporary art lovers. For those who enjoy more traditional ways of life, the Cathedral, known as La Seu, and the Towers of Quart and Serrano are the most important historical landmarks, as well as the Lonja de la Seda, the Silk Exchange, which is a World Heritage Site.

Districts in Valencia
Of all the districts in Valencia, El Carme is the liveliest of them all. Filled with shops, bars, restaurants and clubs, El Carme is the beating heart of the city and the perfect place to find your cheap apartment in Valencia. Ruzafa is one of the more local districts which has an excellent nightlife in terms of restaurants and bars to have a drink after dinner. Poblats Marítims, as its name indicates in the local language, is the old fisherman’s district, with neighbourhoods such as Cabañal and Malvarrosa, where you can find beaches, the port and excellent seafood restaurants, although its dated appearance contrasts with the more modern parts of the city; one for nostalgic people.
