Welcome to the GALA 2024 Valencia Starter Kit, your ultimate guide to making the most of your experience at the upcoming GALA conference in Valencia! As we prepare for our time onsite, our hope is to ensure that your time in this vibrant Spanish city is unforgettable. Whether you're a seasoned conference attendee or a first-timer, this blog is packed with essential tips, recommendations, and insider insights to help you navigate everything from travel arrangements to local cuisine, networking opportunities, and must-see attractions. Get ready to immerse yourself in the rich culture of Valencia while connecting with industry peers and gaining invaluable knowledge to advance in your professional ventures. Let's dive in and start planning for an extraordinary GALA 2024 experience in Valencia! Upon your arrival at Valencia Airport, reaching the city center is convenient via bus, subway, or taxi. The subway journey takes approximately 40 minutes. You'll need to board Line 5 towards Angel Guimerà, making 10 stops before transferring to Line 1 for an additional three stops. Your destination stop, "Beniferri," is a mere 500 meters from the Melià. Opting for a taxi, the trip should last about 15 minutes and will cost approximately €20. You will find all the information at the Spanish Airport Authority official website. If you're arriving in Madrid, your best choice is to proceed to Madrid Puerta de Atocha and board a high-speed train, which will take you to Valencia in just under two hours. For those landing in Barcelona, the preferred route involves catching the Euromed train from Estació de Sants directly to Valencia's Joaquín Sorolla station. This journey takes approximately 3 hours. In April, Valencia typically experiences average daytime temperatures ranging from 12°C (53°F) to 20°C (68°F). Nights can still be cool, but the days are generally warm with an increasing amount of sunshine as the month progresses. Rainfall during April is relatively low, but occasional showers can occur, so it's wise to have an umbrella or a light raincoat handy. It’s also wise to bring sunscreen as having a paella in the sun or enjoying a couple of hours on the beach can be really tempting! We recommend business casual attire for the conference itself. While a jacket may be nice, a full suit is not necessary. Professional, yet comfortable is the key. Conference venues are notoriously difficult to "get right" in terms of temperature. Between everyone's individual preferences, the flow of bodies, and the space itself, you may find sessions to either be too cold or too warm for your comfort. We highly recommend bringing a sweater or jacket each day. Attendees often like to change outfits between the core conference and social/networking events. The GALA Dinner is often considered the most formal event, but don’t fret, there is no need to break out the tux and ballgowns. Other events may follow the business casual theme, or take a slightly more causal tone. If attending the pre- or post- conference tours, be sure to wear comfortable shoes and again, come prepared with layers! Valencian cuisine is a tantalizing blend of Mediterranean flavors, rich history, and diverse influences. Renowned for its fresh ingredients and bold flavors, Valencian cuisine is deeply rooted in its coastal location, with seafood playing a prominent role in many dishes. Valencia's culinary landscape also boasts delectable tapas, succulent oranges, and indulgent sweets, making it a paradise for food enthusiasts. Paella Valenciana: The most iconic dish of Valencia, Paella Valenciana is a must-try. Unlike its seafood counterparts, the original recipe features chicken, rabbit, green beans, broad white beans and occasionally sometimes snails, all cooked in a large, shallow pan over an open flame. It's flavored with saffron and rosemary, giving it a distinctive taste and color. Should you find yourself wondering about the absence of chorizo, it's essential to understand that authentic paella never includes chorizo, ham, beef. This is an indisputable aspect of the dish's traditional recipe. Paella developed as a “hunter’s dish” from the days locals hunted in the southern lake “Albufera” - with no chicken but duck originally. Horchata de Chufa: A refreshing drink perfect for the warm Valencian climate, horchata is made from tigernuts, water, and sugar. It's typically served cold and is often accompanied by “fartons”, long, sweet pastries perfect for dipping into the drink. Agua de Valencia: Despite its name, Agua de Valencia is not locally sourced water, but a cocktail made from a mix of fresh orange juice, cava (Spanish sparkling wine), Cointreau or vodka, and gin or rum depending of house “secret formula”. It's a popular local drink, especially in social gatherings and celebrations and highly advertised in old-fashioned bars and restaurants in the old town (El Carme, etc) Arroz al Horno: Another rice dish that showcases the versatility of Valencian rice. It includes ingredients like pork ribs, sausage, tomato, potatoes, and garbanzo beans, baked in a clay pot with rice. It's hearty and deeply flavorful. Fideuà: Similar to paella but with short noodles instead of rice. Fideuà is typically made with seafood and is cooked in a paella pan. It's a savory dish that originated in the coastal regions of Valencia. Esgarraet: A simple yet flavorful appetizer made of roasted red peppers and bacalao (salted cod), marinated in olive oil and garlic. It's often served with fresh bread. Allioli: A garlic and olive oil emulsion that accompanies many Valencian dishes. It's similar to mayonnaise but with a strong garlic flavor, perfect for adding zest to meats, seafood, and vegetables. GALA offers several conference tours and excursions that may be added on to your conference registration for a fee and cover many of the most popular sights including the City of Arts and Sciences complex, Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia (Reina Sofia Palace of the Arts), Museo Fallero de València (The Fallas Museum), Old Town Valencia, Estació del Nord (Valencia Nord Station), Palatial Ayuntamiento (City Hall), Mercado Central (Central Market), La Lonja de la Seda (Silk Exchange), Marqués de Dos Aguas Palace (National Ceramic Museum), L'Albufera/El Palmar, and more. However, if you’re looking to take in even more of the city, here are a few lesser-known stops that you might consider adding to your itinerary. But first, a bit of history about the city... Valencia was founded in year 138 BC and as you can guess by the name, it was “the home of the brave” (the valiants, that is, veteran Roman soldiers who had served the Republic. Ruins by the riverbed prove that Haníbal built a small fort in what is now Valencia before attacking Sagunto (north of Valencia), starting the Punic War and crossing the Alps with his elephants. You can visit the original Roman level, with its “cardus” and “decumanus maximus” (the crossed streets) and parts of the town at L’Almoina. The city underwent Roman, Visigoth and Muslim rule until it was briefly taken by El Cid. King Jaume I reconquered it in 1238 and created a “new, free kingdom”, with settlers coming mostly from the western part of Catalonia, Aragon and other parts of Europe (francés, anglès, alemany are not uncommon surnames in the area). Visit the monumental Torre de Serranos by the riverbed and Torres de Quart (the original gate) from those times. The holes you can see in the Torres de Quart come from Napoleonic troops bombarding the city in the early 1800’s. Vall d’Uixó - Coves de Sant Josep [Caves of San Jose]: Located at about one hour by train from Valencia’s station, Estaciò del Nord, Coves de Sant Josep holds the longest navigable underground river in Europe. Enter the depths of the Sierra de Espadán and discover unique prehistoric paintings and engravings. This underground landscape’s visit lasts around 45 minutes and includes a section by boat of 800 meters and a walk of 250 meters with a constant temperature of 20ºC. Iglesia de San Nicolás de Bari y San Pedro Mártir [Church of San Nicolás]: Perhaps Valencia’s best secret in town is its “Sixtine Chapel.” At least equally impressive as it’s Vatican City counterpart, is certainly worth a visit outside conference hours or in the morning. The interior of the church was completed between 1690-1693, and was decorated by Juan Pérez Castiel in baroque fashion. It has frescoes, depicting the lives of San Nicola and Peter of Verona, along with virtues and allegories, designed by Antonio Palomino and completed by Dionis Vidal. The chapel altarpieces include works by Juan de Juanes, Fernando Yáñez de la Almedina, Jerónimo Jacinto de Espinosa, and José Vergara Gimeno. Palau Alameda – Fly me to the moon - Palau Alameda is a beautiful and vibrant rooftop restaurant and rooftop bar.It may not look too engaging from the outside. However, the inside is breathtaking. Enjoy more than 2,000 square meters of gastronomy, culture and leisure spread over three different spaces: the club Azza, the event space La Sala, and the rooftop “ ÀTIC”. Modern, colorful and blossomy. Immerse yourself in an urban oasis with stunning views over the Alameda and the old riverbed of Túria river. From lunch, dinner to some delicious drinks at DJ party nights, Palau Alameda is one of the hotspots in Valencia. ÀTIC gets started around 4 - 5 PM and stays open well passed midnight at week-ends. Definitely a place to go! Valencia Tourist Card If you're in Valencia for one, two or three days, you may want to get the Valencia Tourist Card. It's a physical card you can use to travel around the city by public transport and get into museums and some monuments for free. It also entitles you to special discounts on numerous attractions, tours, stores and restaurants. What’s included?

We know many of you are visiting Valencia by way of other major Spanish cities. Making your way through Madrid or Barcelona? Here are a few bits information for both. On your way to (or from) Valencia… Madrid! If you have a stopover in Madrid on your way to the conference or flying back home, don’t miss this opportunity to visit the capital of Spain. Madrid pulsates with life, captivating visitors with its majestic architecture, world-class art, and fiery passion for life. Here, every corner tells a story, from the grandeur of the Royal Palace to the bustling markets of El Rastro, echoing centuries of Spanish heritage and innovation. The high-speed trains to and from Valencia (AVE) arrive and depart from Atocha Railway Station, which is located at walking distance from three of Madrid’s most important museums: El Prado, Reina Sofía and Thyssen-Bornemisza. Lower-priced alternatives started operating between the capital and Valencia some years ago. In Madrid's Atocha area, there are several notable attractions and points of interest worth exploring during your stopover. Begin your journey at the iconic Puerta de Atocha [Atocha Railway Station] - Atocha Station is known for its stunning architecture and bustling atmosphere. Inside the station, don't miss the tropical garden conservatory, a serene oasis filled with lush greenery, ponds, and even turtles, providing a tranquil escape from the city's hustle and bustle. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía [Reina Sofía Museum] - One of Madrid's premier contemporary art museums lies adjacent to Atocha Station. Housing an impressive collection of 20th-century Spanish art, including masterpieces by Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso, the museum offers a captivating journey through Spain's artistic evolution. Be sure to spend some time admiring Picasso's famous painting, Guernica, a powerful depiction of the Spanish Civil War. Parque del Retiro [Retiro Park] - For a dose of nature and relaxation, head to one of Madrid's largest and most beautiful green spaces. Here, you can wander through landscaped gardens, row a boat on the lake, or simply relax under the shade of a tree. With its numerous fountains, sculptures, and picturesque pathways, Retiro Park offers the perfect escape from the urban hustle, allowing you to recharge and rejuvenate before continuing your exploration of Madrid's Atocha area. For a taste of Madrid's culinary scene, venture into the lively neighborhood surrounding Atocha. Here, you'll find an array of traditional taverns, trendy cafes, and local eateries serving up authentic cuisine from all of Spain’s regions. Whether you're craving classic tapas, savory paella, or innovative fusion dishes, you're sure to find something to satisfy your palate in this vibrant culinary hub. Another option is visiting the picturesque neighborhoods of Tirso de Molina and Lavapiés, known for their eclectic atmosphere and diverse cultural scene. Wander through narrow streets adorned with colorful street art, and discover hidden gems such as quirky art galleries, cozy cafes, and vibrant markets (don’t miss “El Rastro” on Sunday mornings!). Stop to sample some traditional Spanish tapas at one of the local taverns or indulge in international cuisine at one of the many multicultural eateries in the area. ¡Bienvenidos a Madrid! Barcelona If you were thinking of visiting Barcelona before or after the conference, these are some of our suggestions for you to fully enjoy the jewel of the Mediterranean. La Sagrada Familia - Gaudi’s monumental masterpiece is finally in its latest stages before completion with a projected completion date around 2030. The Sagrada Família is a one-of-a-kind temple, for its origins, foundation and purpose. Fruit of the work of genius architect Antoni Gaudí, the project was promoted by the people for the people. Five generations now have watched the Temple progress in Barcelona. Today, more than 140 years after the laying of the cornerstone, construction continues on the Basilica. Tip: Ensure you reserve your tickets well in advance to explore the interior of the basilica, where you'll be captivated by the breathtaking play of natural light and colors. Allow 1-2 hours to visit it. Casa Batlló [The House of Bones] - In the heart of the Passeig de Gràcia, one of the most beautiful streets in the world, and right across Casa Milà, or as people from Barcelona call it, La Pedrera, lies the Casa Batlló, a magical house and another Gaudí masterpiece. Tip: Get your tickets in advance to visit this UNESCO World Heritage site. Duration of the visit: 1h 30 mins. Bonus tip: From April 21 to 23 the whole building will be dressed in roses to celebrate Sant Jordi Barri Gòtic [Gothic Quarter] - The Gothic Quarter is the historic centre of the old city of Barcelona. It stretches from Las Ramblas to Via Laietana, and from the Mediterranean seafront to the Ronda de Sant Pere. The quarter encompasses the oldest parts of the city of Barcelona, and includes the remains of the city's Roman wall and several notable medieval landmarks. Take a stroll through the narrow streets and discover small plazas with quaint bars and restaurants. Don’t forget to visit the Cathedral, the Ajuntament (Town Hall) and the Palau de la Generalitat (The Autonomic Government Building) are opposite each other at the Plaça Sant Jaume, take a walk to Plaça Reial or Plaça del Pi and enjoy the old Barcelona from medieval times. Tip: Don’t be just like any other tourist and avoid Las Ramblas to have lunch or even a drink. Those are tourist traps. Go and explore the little streets and find a spot you like. There are so many! Casa Milà (La Pedrera) - Popularly known as La Pedrera ("the stone quarry") in reference to its unconventional rough-hewn appearance, is a Modernista building and the last private residence designed by architect Antoni Gaudí and was built between 1906 and 1912. In 1984, it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. At the time, it was controversial because of its undulating stone facade, twisting wrought iron balconies, and design by Josep Maria Jujol. Several structural innovations include a self-supporting stone façade, a free-plan floor, an underground garage and the spectacular terrace on the roof. El Born - The lower section of the La Ribera district, just below Carrer de la Princesa, and leading to Barceloneta is referred to as El Born after the 19th century market on carrer del Comerç that dominates the area. This is one of the trendiest and most touristic districts in the old city. It is a popular place for tourists and contains many art boutiques, bars and cafés. Many of the buildings date from late Medieval times. It was a well-to-do quarter during 13th–15th centuries, when it really was by the sea shore, and the area that today is named Barceloneta was still an island. Notable buildings are the Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar, which was financed and built by the people of Barcelona, and the palaces along Carrer de Montcada. The former market hall Mercat del Born covers archaeological ruins which were part of the La Ribera district that was demolished after the Siege of Barcelona (1713–14) and the defeat of Catalonia in the War of Succession. Another place of interest is the Fossar de les Moreres, the site of a mass grave of Catalan soldiers fallen during the siege of 1714. Tip: Take a walk through its narrow streets and discover the trendy shops, bars and restaurants that make this quarter one of the coolest places in Barcelona. Pro tip: According to The World’s 50 Best, Barcelona boasts the best bar in the world and the second-best restaurant in the world (first in Europe). Just saying!
欢迎使用GALA 2024巴伦西亚入门套件,这是您在即将到来的巴伦西亚GALA大会上充分利用体验的终极指南!当我们为我们的现场时间做准备时,我们希望确保您在这个充满活力的西班牙城市度过难忘的时光。无论你是经验丰富的与会者还是第一次参加会议,这个博客都包含了重要的提示、建议和内部见解,可以帮助你浏览从旅行安排到当地美食、社交机会和必看景点的一切。准备好沉浸在巴伦西亚丰富的文化中,同时与行业同行联系,获得宝贵的知识,以推进您的专业事业。让我们开始计划在巴伦西亚举办一场非凡的2024年盛会吧! 到达巴伦西亚机场后,乘坐公共汽车、地铁或出租车到达市中心非常方便。 地铁旅程大约需要40分钟。你需要登上开往安吉尔·吉梅拉的5号线,在换乘1号线之前停10站,再停3站。你的目的地“Beniferri”距离梅利亚只有500米。 选择出租车,行程应该持续大约15分钟,大约花费€20英镑。 你可以在西班牙机场管理局官网找到所有信息。 如果你到达马德里,你最好的选择是前往马德里Puerta de Atocha,登上高速列车,不到两个小时就可以到达巴伦西亚。 对于那些在巴塞罗那着陆的人来说,首选路线包括从Estacióde Sants直接乘坐欧洲地中海列车到巴伦西亚的Joaquin Sorolla站。这段旅程大约需要3个小时。 四月,巴伦西亚白天的平均温度通常在12摄氏度(53华氏度)到20摄氏度(68华氏度)之间。夜晚仍然凉爽,但随着时间的推移,白天通常是温暖的,阳光越来越多。四月的降雨量相对较少,但偶尔会有阵雨,所以手边准备一把雨伞或一件薄雨衣是明智的。带上防晒霜也是明智的,因为在阳光下吃肉菜饭或在沙滩上享受几个小时真的很诱人! 我们建议会议本身穿商务休闲装。虽然夹克可能不错,但全套西装不是必须的。专业,但舒适是关键。 众所周知,会议场地在温度方面很难“搞定”。在每个人的个人偏好、身体的流动和空间本身之间,你可能会发现会议对你的舒适来说要么太冷要么太热。我们强烈建议每天带一件毛衣或夹克。 与会者通常喜欢在核心会议和社交/网络活动之间更换服装。晚宴通常被认为是最正式的活动,但不要担心,没有必要拿出晚礼服和舞会礼服。其他活动可能会遵循商务休闲主题,或者采取稍微更随意的语气。 如果参加会前或会后的参观,一定要穿舒适的鞋子,再次,准备多层! 巴伦西亚美食是地中海风味、丰富历史和不同影响的诱人融合。巴伦西亚美食以其新鲜的食材和大胆的风味而闻名,深深植根于其沿海位置,海鲜在许多菜肴中发挥着突出的作用。巴伦西亚的美食景观还拥有美味的小吃、多汁的橙子和放纵的糖果,使其成为美食爱好者的天堂。 巴伦西亚肉菜饭:巴伦西亚最具标志性的菜肴,巴伦西亚肉菜饭是必尝之物。与海鲜不同,最初的食谱以鸡肉、兔子、青豆、宽白豆和偶尔的蜗牛为特色,所有这些都在一个大而浅的锅里在明火上烹制。它用藏红花和迷迭香调味,赋予它独特的味道和颜色。如果你发现自己对没有西班牙香肠感到疑惑,有必要明白正宗的西班牙海鲜饭从不包括西班牙香肠、火腿和牛肉。这是这道菜传统食谱中无可争议的一个方面。西班牙海鲜饭从当地人在南部“阿尔布费拉”湖狩猎的时候就发展成为一种“猎人的菜肴”——最初没有鸡肉,只有鸭子。 Horchata de Chufa:一种清爽的饮料,非常适合温暖的巴伦西亚气候,Horchata由老虎坚果、水和糖制成。它通常是冷的,通常配有“fartons”,这是一种长而甜的糕点,非常适合蘸着喝。 Agua de Valencia:尽管它的名字,Agua de Valencia不是当地来源的水,而是一种鸡尾酒,由新鲜橙汁、卡瓦(西班牙起泡酒)、君度或伏特加以及杜松子酒或朗姆酒混合而成,取决于家族的“秘密配方”。这是一种很受欢迎的当地饮料,尤其是在社交聚会和庆祝活动中,在老城区的老式酒吧和餐馆(El Carme等)做了大量广告 Arroz al Horno:另一道展示巴伦西亚大米多功能性的米饭。它包括排骨、香肠、西红柿、土豆和鹰嘴豆等配料,与米饭一起在陶罐中烘焙。这是丰盛的,味道很好。 Fideuà:类似于肉菜饭,但用短面条代替米饭。Fideuà通常由海鲜制成,在肉菜饭锅中烹制。这是一道起源于巴伦西亚沿海地区的美味菜肴。 Esgarraet:一种简单而美味的开胃菜,由烤红辣椒和bacalao(咸鳕鱼)制成,用橄榄油和大蒜腌制。它经常和新鲜面包一起食用。 Allioli:一种大蒜和橄榄油乳液,搭配许多巴伦西亚菜肴。它类似于蛋黄酱,但有强烈的大蒜味,非常适合给肉类、海鲜和蔬菜添加风味。 GALA提供几个会议旅游和短途旅行,可以付费添加到您的会议注册中,涵盖许多最受欢迎的景点,包括艺术和科学城综合体、帕劳艺术中心(雷纳索非亚艺术宫)、法勒罗博物馆(法拉斯博物馆)、巴伦西亚老城、Estaciódel Nord(巴伦西亚北部站)、富丽堂皇的Ayuntamiento(市政厅)、中央市场(中央市场)、丝绸交易所、Marques de dos Aguas Palace(国家陶瓷博物馆)、L’Albufera/El Palmar等等。 然而,如果你想更多地游览这座城市,这里有几个鲜为人知的景点,你可以考虑加入你的行程。 但首先,了解一下这座城市的历史... 巴伦西亚建于公元前138年,正如你可以从名字中猜到的,它是“勇敢者之家”(勇敢者,即为共和国服务的罗马老兵)。河床旁的废墟证明哈尼巴尔在进攻萨贡托(巴伦西亚北部)、发动布匿战争和带着大象翻越阿尔卑斯山之前,在现在的巴伦西亚建造了一座小堡垒。你可以参观原始的罗马层,有“cardus”和“decumanus maximus”(交叉的街道)和L’Almoina的部分城镇。 这座城市经历了罗马人、西哥特人和穆斯林的统治,直到被艾尔熙德短暂占领。国王约梅一世于1238年重新征服了它,并建立了一个“新的、自由的王国”,定居者大多来自加泰罗尼亚西部、阿拉贡和欧洲其他地区(francés、anglès、alemany在该地区并不少见)。参观河床边纪念性的Torre de Serranos和那个时代的Torres de Quart(最初的大门)。你可以在托雷斯德夸特看到的洞来自19世纪早期拿破仑军队轰炸这座城市。 圣何塞洞穴(Vall d’Uixó-Coves de Sant Josep):圣何塞洞穴(Coves de Sant Josep)是欧洲最长的可通航地下河,距离巴伦西亚车站约一小时车程。进入埃斯帕丹山脉的深处,发现独特的史前绘画和雕刻。这个地下景观的参观持续约45分钟,包括800米的乘船和250米的恒温步行。 圣尼古拉教堂(Iglesia de San Nicolás de Bari y San Pedro Mártir):也许巴伦西亚城里最好的秘密是它的“Sixtine教堂”。至少和梵蒂冈城一样令人印象深刻,当然值得在会议时间之外或早上去一趟。教堂内部在1690年至1693年间完成,由胡安·佩雷斯·卡西迪奥以巴洛克风格装饰。它有壁画,描绘了圣尼古拉和维罗纳的彼得的生活,以及美德和寓言,由安东尼奥·帕洛米诺设计,迪奥尼斯·维达尔完成。教堂的祭坛画包括胡安·德·胡安内斯、费尔南多·亚涅斯·德拉·阿尔梅迪纳、耶罗尼莫·哈辛托·德·埃斯皮诺萨和何塞·维加拉·吉梅诺的作品。 帕劳阿拉米达——带我飞向月球——帕劳阿拉米达是一个美丽而充满活力的屋顶餐厅和屋顶酒吧。从外面看可能不太吸引人。然而,里面是惊人的。享受超过2000平方米的美食、文化和休闲,分布在三个不同的空间:俱乐部Azza、活动空间La Sala和屋顶“; 现代,多彩,鲜花盛开。沉浸在城市绿洲中,欣赏阿拉米达和图里亚河古老河床的迷人景色。 从午餐、晚餐到DJ派对之夜的美味饮料,帕劳阿拉米达是巴伦西亚的热点之一。Actic大约在下午4-5点开始营业,周末一直营业到午夜。绝对是个好去处! 巴伦西亚旅游卡 如果你在巴伦西亚呆一天、两天或三天,你可能想办一张巴伦西亚旅游卡。这是一张实体卡,你可以用它乘坐公共交通工具在城市中旅行,并免费进入博物馆和一些纪念碑。它还能让你在众多景点、旅游、商店和餐馆享受特别折扣。 包括什么? AB区免费乘坐城市公交车、地铁、电车、通勤列车和城际公交车(MetroBus)。它还包括乘坐地铁L3和L5线往返机场的行程。 免费进入市政博物馆和纪念碑,如丝绸交易所、Serranos和Quart塔以及其他地标。 该市主要旅游景点的特别折扣,包括艺术和科学城、海洋公园、旅游巴士、Marques de dos Aguas Palace,以及旅游服务、导游。 2份小吃和2份免费饮料。 我们知道你们中的许多人通过西班牙其他主要城市访问巴伦西亚。穿过马德里还是巴塞罗那?以下是两者的一些信息。 在你去(或离开)巴伦西亚的路上…马德里! 如果您在参加会议或飞回家的途中在马德里中途停留,不要错过这个参观西班牙首都的机会。 马德里充满活力,以其雄伟的建筑、世界级的艺术和对生活的热情吸引着游客。在这里,每个角落都讲述着一个故事,从宏伟的皇宫到熙熙攘攘的El Rastro市场,呼应着几个世纪以来西班牙的遗产和创新。 往返巴伦西亚(AVE)的高速列车到达和离开阿托查火车站,该火车站距离马德里最重要的三个博物馆仅几步之遥:El Prado、Reina Sofía和Thyssen-Bornemisza。 几年前,价格较低的替代品开始在首都和巴伦西亚之间运营。 在马德里的阿托查地区,有几个值得在中途停留期间探索的著名景点和名胜。从标志性的 阿托查火车站——阿托查站以其令人惊叹的建筑和繁华的氛围而闻名。在车站内,不要错过热带花园温室,这是一个宁静的绿洲,充满了郁郁葱葱的绿色植物,池塘,甚至海龟,提供了一个远离城市喧嚣的宁静之地。 雷纳索菲亚国家艺术中心博物馆(Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Museum)——马德里首屈一指的当代艺术博物馆之一,毗邻阿托查站。该博物馆收藏了令人印象深刻的20世纪西班牙艺术,包括萨尔瓦多·达利和巴勃罗·毕加索的杰作,提供了一个迷人的西班牙艺术演变之旅。一定要花些时间欣赏毕加索的名画《格尔尼卡》,这是对西班牙内战的有力描绘。 Retiro公园(Retiro Park)——想要感受大自然和放松,请前往马德里最大、最美丽的绿地之一。在这里,你可以漫步于风景优美的花园,在湖上划船,或者只是在树荫下放松。Retiro Park拥有众多的喷泉、雕塑和风景如画的小路,是远离城市喧嚣的绝佳去处,让您在继续探索马德里的Atocha地区之前充电和恢复活力。 想要领略马德里的美食,可以去阿托查周围热闹的街区。在这里,你会发现一系列传统酒馆、时尚咖啡馆和当地餐馆,供应来自西班牙所有地区的正宗美食。无论您是渴望经典的西班牙小吃、美味的西班牙海鲜饭,还是创新的融合菜肴,您一定会在这个充满活力的烹饪中心找到满足您口味的东西。 另一个选择是参观风景如画的Tirso de Molina和Lavapiés街区,以其不拘一格的氛围和多样的文化景观而闻名。漫步在装饰着丰富多彩的街头艺术的狭窄街道上,发现隐藏的宝石,如古怪的美术馆、舒适的咖啡馆和充满活力的市场(不要错过周日早上的“El Rastro”!).停下来在当地的酒馆品尝一些传统的西班牙小吃,或者在该地区众多多元文化餐馆中的一家享受国际美食。 马德里万岁! 巴塞罗那 如果你想在会议前后参观巴塞罗那,以下是我们的一些建议,让你充分享受地中海的瑰宝。 圣家堂——高迪的不朽杰作终于进入了完工前的最新阶段,预计完工日期约为2030年。就其起源、基础和用途而言,圣法米利亚教堂是一座独一无二的寺庙。该项目是天才建筑师安东尼·高迪的工作成果,由人民为人民推广。五代人已经见证了巴塞罗那圣殿的发展。今天,在奠基140多年后,巴西利卡的建设仍在继续。 小贴士:确保你提前预订门票去探索巴西利卡的内部,在那里你会被自然光和色彩的惊人表演所吸引。留出1-2个小时参观。 Casa Batlló[The House of Bones]——位于世界上最美丽的街道之一Gràcia Passeig de Gràcia的中心,就在Casa Milà(巴塞罗那人称之为La Pedrera)对面,坐落着Casa Batlló,这是一座神奇的房子,也是高迪的另一件杰作。 小贴士:提前买票去参观这个联合国教科文组织世界遗产。参观时间:1小时30分钟。 额外提示:从4月21日到23日,整栋大楼都将装扮成玫瑰来庆祝圣乔迪节 哥特式街区是巴塞罗那老城的历史中心。它从兰布拉斯大道延伸到莱埃塔纳大道,从地中海海滨延伸到圣佩雷大道。该街区包括巴塞罗那市最古老的部分,包括该市罗马城墙的遗迹和几个著名的中世纪地标。 漫步在狭窄的街道上,发现有古雅酒吧和餐馆的小广场。不要忘记参观大教堂,Ajuntament(市政厅)和Palau de la Generalitat(自治政府大楼)在Pla ç a Sant Jaume相对,步行到Pla ç a Reial或Pla ç a del Pi,享受中世纪的老巴塞罗那。 小贴士:不要像其他游客一样,避开兰布拉斯去吃午餐甚至喝酒。那些都是旅游陷阱。去探索小街,找一个你喜欢的地方。有这么多! 米拉之家(La Pedrera)——因其非常规的粗糙外观而被称为La Pedrera(“采石场”),是一座现代主义建筑,也是建筑师安东尼·高迪设计的最后一座私人住宅,建于1906年至1912年之间。1984年,它被联合国教科文组织宣布为世界遗产。 当时,它因其起伏的石头立面、扭曲的熟铁阳台和Josep Maria Jujol的设计而备受争议。几个结构创新包括一个自我支持的石头立面,一个自由规划的地板,一个地下车库和屋顶上壮观的露台。 El Born——La Ribera区的下半部分,就在Carrer de la Princesa下方,通往Barceloneta,因19世纪Carrer del Comer ç的市场而被称为El Born,该市场主导着该地区。这是老城区最时尚、游客最多的地区之一。它是一个受游客欢迎的地方,有许多艺术精品店、酒吧和咖啡馆。 许多建筑可以追溯到中世纪晚期。在13-15世纪,它是一个富裕的地区,当时它实际上是在海边,今天被命名为巴塞洛内塔的地区仍然是一个岛屿。著名的建筑是由巴塞罗那人民出资建造的圣玛丽亚教堂和沿着卡雷尔·德·蒙卡达的宫殿。 前市场大厅Mercat del Born覆盖了考古遗址,这些遗址是La Ribera区的一部分,在巴塞罗那围城(1713-1714)和加泰罗尼亚在继承战争中失败后被拆除。另一个有趣的地方是Fossar de les Moreres,这是1714年围城期间倒下的加泰罗尼亚士兵的集体坟墓。 小贴士:在狭窄的街道上散步,发现时尚的商店、酒吧和餐馆,这些使这个街区成为巴塞罗那最酷的地方之一。 专业提示:根据世界50大最佳酒吧,巴塞罗那拥有世界上最好的酒吧和世界上第二好的餐厅(欧洲第一)。随便说说!
