BARRIO DEL CARMEN

The historic centre of the city is a maze of small streets filled with bars, clubs and restaurants; this is one of the best and most fashionable nightlife spots in Valencia. Valencians know all too well from 8 pm onwards from Wednesday to Saturday the atmosphere picks up and the Barrio del Carmen is the place to be and to be seen. You will not see large crowds until after 10 pm and bars start closing – now by law – at around 2 am which is when people head off to the clubs or other areas which stay open all night. Calle Caballeros is at the heart of the action. This area tends to be the more expensive of the barrios (districts)
