    La Pilareta

    A few years ago we were living in the very centre of the city in a huge flat with great views across the city. As a consequence, we were suddenly more popular as a stop-off destination. We had many a fun weekend with visitors glued to the view and the events happening way below them […]

    A PUDDING OF MELLOW FRUITFULNESS

    La Ola Fresca Although Britain is not well famed for its culinary heritage, it is generally accepted that we do have some fine desserts.

    CHILLING OUT AT CAFÉ MUSEU

    Set in a mellow corner of the historic centre, ‘Café Museu’ can rightfully claim to have a worthy history all of its own. As one of the first bohemian bars of the Barrio del Carmen, it was founded in 1972 as ‘Raco.’ It was a favourite haunt of the local Art students whose college then […]

    A day at Escuela de Arroces y Paella Valenciana
