Lliria

Roman Architecture

Llíria is the capital of the area known as Camp de Túria in the province of Valencia.

Under the Romans, Llíria was as important as Valencia or Sagunt. The town is very rich in Roman finds, including a large Roman leisure center with a temple, shops, pools,

and hot baths.

Recent archaeological excavations have uncovered one of Spain's largest-ever caches of buried coins. Popularly known as the Treasure of Carrer Duc de Llíria, it totals some 6,000 silver denarii minted in the first and third centuries. Another archaeological find was a mosaic of The Twelve Labours of Hercules, which was excavated from a Domus Romana (Roman home) at Can Porcar or Casa de Porcar (Porcar House) in Llíria. It is currently displayed at the National Archaeological Museum of Spain (in Madrid).  Additionally, Llíria's own archaeological museum contains imagery from its original location including details of each of the labors along with other Roman artifacts from the town.

Music

Lliria is well known for its music.

Several thousand of Llíria's residents play musical instruments and the city is well known for its two intensely rival bands (wind orchestras). The first band, the "Banda Primitiva", was formed by a Franciscan friar Antoni Albarracín Enguídanos in 1819 and the subsequent band divided in 1903 to form the rival Unió Musical.

Real Monasterio de San Miguel

de Llíria

This monastery is composed of a group of irregular buildings surrounding the church. The principal façade is topped by the image of San Miguel. Two semi-circular arches are the entry to the holy place; they lead up to a staircase which finishes in the patio. The church has a singular nave with side chapels and is covered by a barrel vault. The ceiling is in the rococo style and displays an important collection of paintings.

Bioparc

Bioparc Valencia is a 10-hectare (25-acre) 

zoo park in ValenciaSpain.

The concept of the zoo, called Zooimersion in Spanish, consists of immersing visitors into the animals' habitat and not vice versa.

This is achieved by not using the traditional railings and cages that are common in many zoos, using instead rivers, ponds, streams and rocks to separate visitors from the animals.

Also, great care has been taking in reproducing the eco-systems, including an important collection of African flora.
