Birthplace of PaellaValencia claims to be the birthplace of paella, so where better to try this richly indulgent meat-and-rice dish? Paella can include a variety of meats, beans, and vegetables—along with saffron—the spice that delivers its distinctive golden-yellow color. Paella is slow-cooked in a large pan, so know your meal may take about half an hour to prepare. Nothing a beachside cafe and stunning view won't cure.
