Campanar, much like Benimaclet, is both one of the 19 districts of Valencia and a barrio within that district. This mostly residential area, in the northwestern part of Valencia, is not as popular as other neighbourhoods and districts and is mostly inhabited by families.
The area is known to be one of the quieter, more suburban parts of the city, surrounded by canals, farmland, and vast green spaces.
Both Parque de Cabecera (a vast public park crossed by a river) and the Bioparc are located in the district. You might have heard of the latter, as it is a massive zoological park specialising in African fauna.
Another famous venue in the area is the Palacio de Congresos, designed by internationally renowned architect Norman Foster . The building is a hyper-modern convention centre with a grand exhibition hall and large auditoriums.
