Paterna

On the left-hand bank of the Turia, now embraced by the metropolitan area of Valencia, Paterna has maintained and combined its customs with the constant changes that modern life imposes. Covered, largely, by agricultural land, the town enjoys the tranquillity and traditions of a simple life. In spite of changes to its urban landscape, progress has created large cultural and industrial spaces, which the city needed in order to show two harmonic, complemented yet differentiated faces.
