The best properties in the Valencian Ensanche

The Valencian Ensanche is divided into three other districts, Ruzafa, El Pla del Remei and Gran Vía. The origin of L'Eixample dates back to 1850, at a time when the Valencian capital had a population close to 100,000 people.

When the first Law of the Ensanche was published in Valencia in 1964 and the medieval walls of the capital were demolished, we can safely say that was the starting point for the Ensanche neighbourhood. Subsequently there would be a second expansion in the forms of the present Peris and Valero Avenue.

The walls that surrounded the city were practically rebuilt from scratch and many stately buildings were modernised. This led to the expansion of road networks. Ensanche is now home to large blocks of properties in grid pattern design. In fact, when you take a walk through its streets, you can see these elegant and modernist buildings along the entire length of the neighbourhood. The most dominating building design is the Viennese modernist called, Sezession, but you can also see numerous gothic, rationalism, and art deco styles scattered around the district.

This interesting neighbourhood is nowadays a comfortable and functional residential area, with many ground floor flats converted into commercial premises, and many homes have been turned into offices.

It is a trendy neighbourhood in the city, an ideal place to enjoy its services, to visit or to live in. There are a number of houses that have been renovated due to the current demand for buying and renting.

Sports and leisure

As this district is close to Turia River, it is an ideal area to do all kinds of sports, to walk and enjoy nature. In addition, being located between two avenues that surround the centre of the city, connection by public and private transport is excellent.

The neighbourhood of Pla del Remei

This is one of the most charming areas of Valencia. It is located between the Ruzafa street and the Jardines del Turia as well as between the Gran Vía Marqués de Turia and Calle Colón.

Its shops and modernist buildings make this neighbourhood one of the most interesting in the city. To give an example, Colón Market is a modernist architecture and has been declared a National Monument. It was restored in 2003.
