Lunch at La Beneficencia - in Valencia

For our last day we had thought to try out the traditional Valencian paella in one of the beach side restaurants, but there was rain in the night and the day dawned a little damp and cloudy. Instead, we headed into the old town once more, for lunch at La Beneficencia which had been highly recommended by our Valencian friend, Angel.

When he first e-mailed me the suggestion I couldn't work out where it was, but then I realised it was actually the restaurant within the Museo de Prehistoria y de la Culturas de Valencia, otherwise known as La Beneficencia. To save our weary feet we took the No 5 bus from Calle Colon which circles the old town, following the route of the old city walls.

We have now a blog ourselves and we linked you and would love to have you as a blogger friend, if you agree, of course!

So far, it's only in Spanish, but we hope we'll be soon able to translate some sections into English, so that more people can follow us!

Looking forward to hearing from you!
