Valencia from space
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features the coastal city of Valencia as it appears from space on August 9, 2017.
Valencia is the third largest city in Spain and is located on the eastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula.
The region is famous for its diverse and stunning landscapes which include beaches, mountains, wetlands, and semi-arid desert within an area of just 25,000 square kilometers.
Valencia is not only culturally significant, but is also important economically. The Port of Valencia is the busiest container port on the Mediterranean Sea and the fifth busiest in Europe.
The video is part of the ESA’s Earth from Space series.
