Valencia's Old Town is called 'El Carmen'. It is at the heart of the city and is where much of Valencia's social life takes place. In the morning and throughout the day, you can see local Valencians heading for the classic local treat - horchata and fartons. Horchata is a drink made from tiger nuts and it is classically enjoyed with a sugared finger bun called a farton. Some of the best horchaterias can be found in the old town.
