Located a short distance from the coast, in the heart of Valencia, Algirós is the fashionable district of Valencia city. The five neighborhoods that form this district include, L'Illa Perduda, Ciutat Jardí, L'Amistat, La Bega Baixa and La Carrasca, combining much of the city's student life with a wide range of restaurants that are in favourable locations.
Unlike other districts of Valencia, Algirós does not emerge as an existing municipality that was annexed to the city due to its growth, rather it is situated on the canal with the Acequia de Mestalla waterway. This feature has greatly influenced its path, so there are wide fairways and long avenues with modern construction that give the district high amplitude. This, coupled with its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, makes it one of the most open and fresh parts of the city.
