Valencia arose on the banks of the Turia River. The Turia river if, on the one hand, favored the settlement urban development, on the other hand, was due to permanent flooding and flooding. After the last flood of 1957, the authorities decided to divert the river, and where the first was his bed now lie the Turia Gardens, an oasis of greenery and peace in the town center. Among pine trees, oleanders and palms you can spend your free time here, making a jog along the paths or taking advantage of one of the sports facilities that offer Gardens. The main attraction of the park is a monumental sculpture of Gulliver, 70 meters long.
