Show Notes

We are delighted to be partnering up with the Spanish Tourism Office for our new Ambassadors for Spain series - Every week we will interview some terrific Irish guests who have made Spain their home.  We will get their unique perspective and the insiders track on what to do and see in each region from Valencia to Murcia, from Tenerife to Galicia.   In the Podcast you will hear about incredible Irish connections to Spain and where to go for the best value tapas and discover where all the locals like to go....plus some great tips on our Ambassadors favourite beaches and top sights not to miss in each area.   Today we start off the series with the editor of The Valencian Magazine,  Eugene Costello.   Two decades of bold development have given Spain’s third largest city some of the most striking architecture in the country, adding to the wealth of elegant Art Nouveau buildings that line the streets, as well as Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance monuments.   Located by the sea and surrounded by Mediterranean  style market gardens makes Valencia one of the top places in Spain for eating out.  It has a flourishing restaurant scene and gastronomic events all year round.  Don't miss the Aqua de Valencia.  www.spain.info
