FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX OF EUROPE |

Formula One, the America’s Cup and the construction of the City of Arts and Sciences by architect Santiago Calatrava, have made Valencia a city in transition. Massive construction and transformation over the last 10 years have turned a once little-considered port into one of the most fashionable destinations on the Mediterranean. Fast gaining a reputation as a cultural centre, boutique shopping destination and culinary hub, Valencia has become a party city every bit as exciting as its bigger brother, Barcelona.
