Which area in Valencia is the best to buy in 2017?

Which area in Valencia is the best to buy in 2017? 

​​Valencia, after Madrid and Barcelona, is the third largest Spanish city in terms of size and population. It is a city with much appeal and some of its districts have a special charm that attracts property buyers.

At Engel & Völkers Valencia, we recommend the following five areas:


This fashionable district, especially around Colón market, has become one of the most popular areas, especially for home buyers looking for penthouses.


It has been established as the only district in Valencia whose price has been increasing. This is according to the 2016 Market Report from Engel & Völkers Valencia. Campanar is an area with an expensive price tag, about 1,800-2,000 euros per square metre. Although there are indeed some expensive areas, the report concludes that Valencia is the fifth Spanish city where it is less expensive to buy a home in.

This is a neighbourhood with important cultural attractions. A small district that's full of poetry and architectural beauty.

It is located fifteen minutes away from the centre of Valencia. Benimaclet metro station provides easy access to this interesting district. Thanks to its proximity to Universidades, this neighbourhood is usually full of foreign students.

Another interesting aspect of Benimaclet is that it has almost 30 cultural and social entities. It is certainly a quiet and cultural place.

Benimaclet was, in antiquity, a Valencian municipality. That is why it preserves its church and plaza. It is in this plaza where street performances from musicians are usually held.

Ciudad de las Ciencias

This is one of the neighbourhoods that makes up the district of Quatre Carreres, in the southeastern part of the city. The name of the neighbourhood comes from the name of the architectural complex, the City of Arts and Sciences (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias).

The urbanism of this district, associated with the Valencian architect, Santiago Calatrava, is a true example of future architecture. Its impressive buildings are a visual gift for the senses, including the Hemisféric, l’Oceanogràfic, Ciencias Príncipe Felipe museum, and the ópera del Palau de les Artes Reina Sofía.

Ciutat Vella 

This is one of the most central districts of Valencia. It combines history, culture and politics. Most of its streets still retain their original layout.

Among its places of interest are the Ayuntamiento de Valencia, Palacio de la Generalitat, las Cortes de Valencia, la Bolsa, the Central Market, the Cathedral, the Museum of Ceramics, the Library of Valencia University, Lonja de la Seda, and many more.
