The largest lake in Spain and one of the most important swamp areas in the Iberian Peninsula.
An area of great ecological interest where unique water bird species hibernate. Its rich waters have traditionally provided fishermen and rice growers with a living, giving rise to a succulent cuisine. To savour such dishes, visit El Palmar, a place that inspired many of the novels written by Blasco Ibáñez. You will be able to enjoy typical dishes of Valencia such as Paella, Arrós a Banda or All i Pebre, made with eels from the lake. After your meal, nothing could be better than a boat trip through La Albufera, to see the red and gold colours of the sun setting over the water. One of nature’s marvels just 10 km from Valencia!
