Let us help you decide where to propose in Valencia with our list of the best places to get engaged around the city!
Puente de las Flores
The creation of the well-known Spanish architect—from Valencia, in fact—Santiago Calatrava, the Puente de las Flores, or Bridge of Flowers, is the perfect spot to propose in Valencia.
Crossing over the Jardí del Túria, or Túria Gardens, this special bridge is adorned with 27,000 flowerpots in warm romantic hues of red, orange, and pink, with a sprinkling of wedding white.
Stroll down the wooden walkway with your partner, pop the question, and then sit down on one of the many benches to cozy up together and take in the scenery post-proposal.
Jardí Botanic de la Universitat de Valencia
One of the oldest botanical gardens in all of Spain, the Jardí Botànic de la Universitat de València gives you a lush green backdrop for your marriage proposal in Valencia.
What started out as a garden to grow herbs for medicinal purposes back in the 16th century later was transformed and reopened in 1802 as the gorgeous botanical garden it is today.
Choose from a private spot amid one of Europe’s largest collections of adult palm trees, inside one of the historic greenhouses, or along one of the garden’s many paths when you decide where to propose in Valencia. Your soon-to-be husband or wife is sure to say “I do” surrounded by endless natural beauty.
Torres de Serranos
Considered the main entrance to Valencia, the Torres de Serranos is an impressive, Gothic-style structure dating back to the 14th century that is sure to impress any future bride or groom.
The stunning views of the city and the Turia River from the top of the towers set the scene for the ideal surprise proposal in Valencia.
Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciencies
Aside from drawing crowds from far and wide to get a taste of paella from its birthplace, Valencia’s second biggest draw—and most-visited modern tourist attraction—is the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, or City of Arts and Sciences.
Recognized as one of the “12 Treasures of Spain,” the astounding complex was designed by the aforementioned Santiago Calatrava and Spanish and Mexican architect Félix Candela and boasts six buildings and a bridge, among which you’ll find plenty of different romantic spots to get engaged at.
We particularly like the sculpture garden and landscaped walkway of the L’Umbracle terrace or in a secluded place along the water pool in the middle of the complex.
Torre del Micalet
Forming part of Valencia’s main cathedral, the Torre del Micalet is an octagonal bell tower whose staircase you can climb to feast your eyes on some striking views of the the city.
If you’re prepared to walk up 207 steps, we promise you it’ll be worth it to secure yourself a magnificent backdrop for your proposal in Valencia.
What could be more romantic than getting engaged from one of the city’s best vantage points?
Palau de la Música
From films and concerts to performances and exhibitions, the Palau de la Música, or Palace of Music, is a special venue whose music fills the hearts of the city’s residents—and those of all who visit it.
Nestled along the Turia River and complete with a huge fountain lined with palm trees, this music hall gives you the option to take in a concert before or after your marriage proposal as the cherry on top of a fantastic and memorable day.
Playa del Cabañal
If you want to propose in Valencia with the ocean as background, Playa del Cabañal is your perfect place!
Popularly known as Playa de las Arenas because of the the Balneario de las Arenas building that is there and that imitates a greek temple, this beach of fine golden sand is 1200 meters long and 60 wide, which offers you large area to find your perfect spot to make your marriage proposal.
Besides, the mild temperatures of Valencia during most time of the year will allow you to come here with spring clothing in order to have beautiful photos of your engagement.
