Valencia, Spain, emerges as one of the top travel destinations for 2024, as recommended by Vivian Song of The New York Times. Named the European Commission’s “green capital” for 2024, Valencia boasts miles of velvety sand beaches, a vibrant cultural scene, and a rich gastronomic tradition, including the iconic dish, paella.

The city has been revitalizing its historic center with leafier, pedestrian-only spaces, most recently with Plaza de la Reina, its lively public square, and is on track to be climate-neutral by 2030. Valencia’s cultural landscape has also received a major boost with the Hortensia Herrero Art Center. Opened in November in the restored Valeriola Palace, the space houses the Spanish billionaire Hortensia Herrero’s private contemporary art collection and includes more than 100 works by artists like Anish Kapoor, Andreas Gursky, and Mat Collishaw.
