The squares in Spain are often tree-lined, with gloriously cool shaded spots to escape the intense summer sun.
One of the most beautiful squares in Valencia is the Plaza de la Reina, or ‘Queen’s Square’ in English, located in the old town.
One of the cities’ more controversial claims to fame is that it has what is supposed to be the Holy Grail, the actual cup that Jesus drank from at the last supper.
