Experience The Allure of Valencia: A Journey Through Hotel Palacio Santa Clara

It’s that time of year when the days become longer and the nights grow warmer, creating the perfect opportunity to explore new destinations. If you are thinking about traveling to Europe or the Olympics, Valencia in Spain is a picturesque city waiting to be explored. The city, named after the sweet and fragrant Valencia oranges, is filled with sunshine and breathtaking architecture. With a population of about 800,000 residents, this hidden gem is just a 2-hour flight from Paris and conveniently accessible from major cities across the continent.

One of the must-visit destinations in Valencia is Hotel Palacio Santa Clara, a part of the Autograph Collection, offering a distinctive and memorable stay. Situated in the lively Historical City Center, this hotel, originally a private residence and textile store designed by architect Francisco Javier Görlich in 1916, features beautifully preserved interiors with rich dark wood furnishings, an elegant gilded bar, and modern guest rooms that provide a uniquely Spanish vacation experience. The rooms also offer Juliette balconies with charming views of the streets below.

During your stay in Valencia, don’t miss out on exploring the Albufera Natural Park, located just 6 miles outside the city, where Valencian cuisine originates. This natural reserve is a hidden treasure teeming with migrant birds, turtles, and picturesque walking trails. In the city, immerse yourself in the Instagram-worthy architecture and iconic landmarks, all within walking distance from Hotel Palacio Santa Clara, such as the Valencia Cathedral and Mercado Central de Valencia.

For an authentic cultural experience, witness The Water Tribunals held near the Cathedral on Thursdays, a centuries-old tradition carried out in the original Valencian language. Make sure to also visit the lively El Carmen district for delightful cocktails, delicious dinners, and local cuisine.

Whether you are enjoying a weekend retreat at Hotel Palacio Santa Clara or using it as a base for your European adventure, you will undoubtedly fall in love with Valencia and find yourself wanting to return time and again. Be sure to relax at the hotel’s rooftop terrace bar or delve into the rich history of the property, once a textile shop and a private residence.

Indulge in the vintage allure of the guest rooms, take enjoyable walking tours of Valencia’s historic center, and unwind in the classic cocktail bar within Hotel Palacio Santa Clara. When you are ready to explore, Valencia has a diverse culinary scene and vibrant nightlife, just steps away from the hotel.
