A variety of Mediterranean vegetation grows along the landscaped Umbracle. Its constant change throughout the seasons makes the walkway an attractive place to stroll. The views across the Turia are beautiful, especially at sunset. The last building to be completed was the Àgora. The impressive structure hosts various events.
