The old port of València is known today as La Marina de València: it is a public space that covers a million square meters and infinite activities. It is an epicenter of culture, innovation and entrepreneurship in the city, a consolidated maritime front in which gastronomy, sport, music and business coexist in harmony.


Throughout La Marina de València you will find emblematic buildings such as Veles e Vents, which with its original architecture has become a symbol of the city’s maritime façade. You will also see the Clock Building, the Tinglados and the old shipyard. Inside Veles e Vents there are exhibitions, dance events and all kinds of arts; check their programming and take advantage to discover their gastronomic options.


Sailing is, of course, the main activity in this area. There are more than 800 moorings available for private boats, all kinds of service companies and activities at sea, sports clubs and also sports federations that offer sailing, diving or canoeing. Another branch of La Marina de València is dedicated to business innovation. It hosts Marina de Empresas, an initiative to encourage entrepreneurship and support new ideas. There are plenty of bars and nightlife, as well as green areas and children’s games.
