Valencia: A Photo Essay…The Mediterranean City of Culture

Valencia combines urban life and a relaxed, seaside atmosphere that offers endless cultural activities. Located the same distance from Barcelona and Madrid, this Mediterranean gem is only a short ferry ride or flight from the Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca, and Formentera.

As an ISA Valencia student you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a number of organized excursions and cultural activities such as taking part in a scavenger hunt, volunteering with local organizations, touring the outskirts of the city by bicycle and visiting the City of Arts and Sciences–amongst many others! For more information, visit the ISA Valencia Culture Corner.
