Another example of the delicate connotations of periphery: Valencia‘s Nazaret district was peripheral in two respects: Located on the periphery of the city and on the edge of the sea. The hotel and sanatorium Benimar stood at the beach‘s ample edge until the Port of Valencia was expanded and walls were erected that completely isolated Nazaret from the sea. From then on, visitors could no longer enjoy the endless ocean horizon; instead, their view was of a wall and the cranes in the container port beyond it. Instead of several metres, the path to the beach was now kilometres long. The sound of motors and metal on metal replaced the crashing of the waves and the cries of seagulls. Nazaret is thus no longer on the edge of the sea, but merely on the edge of the city. The hotel closed its doors long ago.
