You will have some free time to amble through the stalls, taking in the array of culinary delights on offer.

After ample time in the market, we journey away from the centre of Valencia to the stunning Albufera, one of the largest wetlands in Spain. This national park is home to a vast lake, dune beaches, lush vegetation and rice fields. Today we will visit El Palmar, a little village home to more than 350 species of bird. Take a moment to listen to the sounds of nature and try to identify the different birds by their signature call. We will then embark on a boat ride around this tranquil lagoon, stopping to visit a Valencian Barraca House. These structures once housed fishermen and farmers alike, but now remain only as a whisper to Valencia’s past.  We shall then have some time to stop for lunch and sample the local paella at one of the many traditional restaurants in Albufera.
