Do you know what the Serrano Towers and the Quart Towers are?
They are the remains of the walled city that was Valencia, were two of the gates that gave access to the city and that today still stand.
Plaza de la Virgen and Cathedral of Valencia.
If you visit the Plaza de la Virgen and the Cathedral of Valencia you will find 21 centuries of history with different architectural styles. In this same square every Thursday at 12 o’clock the court of the waters, recognized by the Unesco Intangible Heritage of Humanity, meets.
Lonja de la Seda.
The famous Lonja de la Seda is one of the most representative buildings of civil Gothic in Europe, declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site. Its stone facade with sculptures and gargoyes next to the perfect proportions of its doors and windows. Our Home Youth Hostel is right in front!
The palace of the Marquis of Two Waters.
It is the ultimate representation of Spanish Baroque art. In it is the National Museum of Ceramics, with unique pieces dating from prehistory to Picasso. In addition, inside you can see how a noble Valencian family lived in the eighteenth century.
In this Mediterranean city has always been very important the diet and the product, that is why we have different markets scattered throughout the city. But the two most important have been:
The Central Market.
The central market is considered one of the largest on the continent, located inside a jewel of pre-modernist architecture. Feel the smells of the garden, palate Mediterranean products and enjoy the gastronomy of the land.
The Colon Market.
The Colón market has now been rehabilitated and is conceived as a playful and cultural space with its shops, restaurants and cafes.
The great north station.
It is the most beautiful modernist building in the city and current railway station. The inspiration for its facade in Valencian agriculture and the references of the city, will place you between modernity and tradition, between the local and the cosmopolitan.
