Plaza España The area of Plaza España is lively and central, within walking distance to El Carmen and Juan Llorens, the main nightlife areas in Valencia with lots of bars, restaurants and discotheques.The Carmen neighbourhood is around one thousand years old. It has undergone extreme change and is now full of young people and lively bars. This lifestyle in contrast to the backdrop of old stone buildings and hidden courtyards, huge wooden doors with high door-knockers (to be reached from horseback) gives the Carmen a unique charm.Brimming with bars, restaurants, pubs and discotheques it is a lively place to spend your evening. Unique shops and boutiques of different styles, from vintage to modern brands abound in el Carmen.In the city centre, to the south of the Carmen, you will find all the international boutiques and the national commercial brands in a nice ambient. The largest square is the Plaça de l'Ajuntament, which contains the town hall (ajuntament), a cinema which shows classic movies (La Filmoteca), and many restaurants and bars.You cannot miss the majestic post office with paintings on the ceiling. The neuralgic centre of Valencia is all around the area of Colon.It is also very well connected with the public transport, with direct lines to the airport, to the beach and the port.
