Trip (Guadalest, Altea,  Benidorm and Historical Valencia)
(see the registration form, lunch included, by bus)

8:00 Departure from UPV
Guadalest enjoys a spectacular location, set high on a pinnacle and carved into the mountain. Declared a ‘Monument of Historical and Artistic Value’, it’s easy to see why so many tourists flock to this stunning village every year. A guided tour takes you through the cobbled streets of this fairytale village and lets you enjoy the spectacular views. Head for the upper village, through a tunnel hewn out of the rock, on which the castle ruins and church’s distinctive belfry are precariously perched.
Altea / Costa Blanca
From the “punta del Mascarat” set in a bay, Altea has found a nook between the sea and the mountains, granting an almost symbolic image of the Costa Blanca. With the blue and white dome of its Parochial Church, the municipality spreads down to the Mediterranean Sea. Small and beautiful coves and beaches extend along a littoral riddled with the same captivating white charm held by the town itself.
Visit and lunch
Panoramic visit on board a bus to the old city. Once there, visit the major monuments of Valencia: Estación del Norte, Plaza de Toros, Plaza del Ayuntamiento, Mercado Central, Lonja, Plaza Redonda, Palacio del Marques de Dos Aguas, Catedral, Plaza de la Almoina and Plaza de la Virgen. The visitors will then be driven past the old riverbed of the Turia to the most avant-garde part of the city to marvel at the arts and sciences complex known as Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias.

18:30 Return to UPV
