Valencia was established by the Romans, later ruled by the Moors, who left an indelible mark, and has grown to become one of Spain's most modern and welcoming cities. One of the striking features about this port is its appeal to whole families. There is much for adults to find entrancing, but children will be equally fulfilled with their visit. Where most cities have one or two attractions that are designed for the young set, Valencia is chock-full of sites that will bring out the child in all of us. Beginning in 1998, the city embarked in the construction of the City of Arts and Sciences built in the former riverbed of the Turia River. The "City" includes five ultramodern buildings that include a planetarium, oceanographic museum, dophinarium, and science museum. Valencia is also famous for its paella; its ceramics, including the delicate Lladro creations; the UNESCO World Heritage Silk Exchange Building with its tower gates; and its local beaches. There are two excellent nature parks nearby which afford bird watching and hiking opportunities. Just 30 minutes north is the small city of Sagunto that offers additional historic attractions, including a massive hilltop castle.
