Until 1972, Benimaclet used to be a separate town. Nowadays it is the number one choice for many students. The neighbourhood is home to several university buildings and has great transport connections to the city centre. It has a very special history of its own, the town of L’Horta being very, very traditional.
The area offers a wide range of possibilities to anyone who wants to enjoy a fun and charming evening. The main church square is a meeting point for residents and houses several festivities.
From bars like ‘La Gramola’ (Baron San Petrillo No. 9), with a bohemian atmosphere and mojitos at a great price, to terraces tucked into courtyards with original decorations, like ‘Pata Negra’ (Baron de San Petrillo No. 3). If you have not yet savoured a good Valencia orxata, then here you’ll find some of the best around, as Benimaclet is located near the town of Alboraya, where the drink is manufactured. A great choice to try this Valencian delicacy is at the Horchatería Daniel!
Don’t miss out CSOA L’Horta, an occupied traditional house with urban gardens, open for people to go and grow fruits and vegetables, where cultural, social and political events and workshops take place.

🏘️  The neighbours:
Local and foreign students.

💙  You’ll fall in love with:

El Cabanyal

If you can’t stay away from the sea and you want to be surrounded by many different cultures, you must go to Cabañal. This neighbourhood used to be a fishermen town until it became a district within Valencia city. Then, the neighbourhood deteriorated due to lack of investment of the council, and thanks to the citizens, Cabañal is resisting and growing strong and soulful. Here, you can find La Col.lectiva, a space where weekly workshops are done (yoga, theatre, social integration, handicrafts..) with the aim of creating a cultural network in a neighbourhood with such diversity. Also, for gigs and other scenic arts shows, go to TEM (Teatre el Musical); there’s a great and broad agenda. Eat cheap at Work in Progress for interesting reinvented tapas, live music and shows, or La Paca -right in front of TEM- for traditional Spanish and Valencian food (with its speciality in omelettes, don’t miss out the vegan tortilla!). Finally, go to 27 Amigos for a memorable night with non-commercial music of all genres.

🏘️  The neighbours:
Locals aka passionate El Cabanyal residents, and students.

💙  You’ll fall in love with:
The sea! You’ll have a beautiful view of it anywhere in the neighbourhood.
