Valencian cuisine, imbued with the essence of the Mediterranean, is strongly influenced by the richness of the region. Sea and land, complemented by inland areas, collectively give rise to a vast array of high quality produce.
The city prides itself on its historic culinary heritage, its maximum exponent being paella. It also offers prestigious fine dining experiences by chefs including Quique Dacosta and Ricard Camarena. València, with its four Michelin-starred restaurants and 28 Repsol suns, is without doubt one of the most highly regarded culinary destinations in Spain.
