Valencia is the third-largest city in Spain, behind Madrid and Barcelona, and one of the most dynamic in the country thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit and eagerness of its population and to the initiatives that the City Council has launched to exploit this potential.
Thanks to this, the city has become the third nodal point of connectivity in the country and a benchmark in areas such as climate change, sustainability, innovation, and smart cities.
Being one of the oldest cities in Spain, Valencia’s rich history has given rise to an important historical, monumental, and cultural heritage. It is also a city that boasts venues such as the City of Arts and Sciences that highlight it as a place in which the old and the new coexist in a perfect symbiosis.
Millions of tourists visit Valencia every year and enjoy the warmth of the Mediterranean coast, and join in the celebration of the innumerable festivals and traditions, especially the Fallas, declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2016.
Its economic activity, with 83% of the population employed, is mainly oriented to providing services and rests on SMEs. Industry and agriculture have populated the outskirts of the city modernizing it and giving it a greater urban character. Valencia is a dynamic economic centre and a reference point for various activities.
