Russafa

The name Russafa actually translates to ‘orchard’ in Arabic – perhaps a reference to the acres of Orange groves for which this area of Spain is now so famous.  It’s a real mix of cultures here with a large Moroccan and South American population.  As such, it’s an area where you can find Halal butchers, kebab restaurants, Arabic pastry shops / tea rooms as well as Cuban bars serving zesty Mojitos and spicy snacks. 

The action part of Russafa is around the market (housed in a rather hideous concrete construction) which opens mon – sat from dawn til 2pm and central church.  There are internet shops, alternative clothing stores and a few good Indian / Arabic food stores here also. 

Previously regarded as a ‘dangerous’ barrio (C/Cuba and C/Buenos Aires can be a little unsafe at night) it’s a really up and coming area which, over recent years has seen a lot of investment from restaurateurs and bar owners.  This has subsequently pushed up the prices of flats, both buy and rent and finding accommodation here can be difficult.  It has some of the most beautiful buildings in Valencia yet it is still an area which still retains a certain rough edge, perhaps the due to its ethnic population.
