‘La Marina de València’, a space to enjoy!
6 July, 2017 / ,

Marine

Cultural offerings, nautical activities, gastronomy, architecture, history and innovation are some of the attractions that the tourist will find in the Valencia’s marine

La Marina de València” cannot be understood without the city’s history or the contribution of its people. From the sailors and fishermen from the maritime towns who have accompanied it since the existence of a small jetty raised nearly a millennium ago. From the farmers and businessmen promoting an exporting Valencia, whose time of splendour would be reflected in the modernist buildings that enclose it today. Of those who bet on the Valencian nautical industry until this portion of the port was fi with moorings. From the innkeepers who offer the best products from our land and our Mediterranean in a unique environment. Ultimately, from all the Valencians who welcome the traveller in a hospitable way.

It is located just 20 minutes away from the city centre by bus, metro or bicycle, and 15 minutes by car. In the Valencia’s marine the tourist will discover a sea of choices: concerts, exhibitions, play areas for children, restaurant business offerings, a beach club and nautical activities. In it you can walk, run or bike contemplating the old and modern buildings, like the emblematic “Veles e Vents”. You will step on the Formula 1 track circuit and admire the boats at a dock for megayachts, whose stimulus was due to the celebration of the 32nd America’s Cup at the end of the last decade.

“La Marina de València” is, therefore, a place where the traveller can enjoy a public space that is increasingly open to Valencians, the Mediterranean and the world. The Levantine horizon of the city merges with its beaches, under the key principle of respect for the environment.

Nautical epicentre

The visitor will find about 40 businesses for nautical services and activities in the Valencia’s marine, which include mechanics, painting, boat and jet ski repairs, rental and sales, and a long etcetera of complementary services. Around this industry, the focus on specialised professional training in this area is being developed.

Business ecosystem

Can you imagine being able to start up your business in an idyllic place? It is possible in the Valencia’s marine. With more than one million square metres, the largest marina in Europe also has a space where creativity and innovation are valued. It is committed to training, start-ups’ support, and sustainable enterprises development is stimulated.

Under the name of “Marina de Empresas” three institutions are positioned: Edem, the training school for entrepreneurs and managers plus the entrepreneurs and engineers’ university; the companies accelerator, Lanzadera; and Angels, the investment company that bases its decisions on the Total Quality Model.

Innsomnia is another wager on innovation based in this marine. It is the first business incubator specialised in Fintech in Spain.
