The cycling is spectacular in and around Valencia. It’s a delightful rural setting strewn with winding countryside, beautiful scenery, and the occasional quaint little vineyard. While the Tour de France is famous around the world, not as well known but just as challenging and charming is the La Vuelta. One of the three cycling Grand Tours that occur annually each year, draws professional cyclists the same as the Tour de France. Founded in 1935, the La Vuelta is the newest Grand Tour, and is a great reason to visit Valencia.
- Valencia hosts the La Vuelta, one of the three French Grand Tours of cycling.
- A beautiful beach is Benicassim on the Costa del Azahar, near the Desert de les Palmes mountains.
