“Compact city garden in an elegant setting with fountains, statues, fruit trees & flora.”
“It is an important landmark and one of the best preserved monuments of Valencia. Of the ancient city wall, which was pulled down in 1865 on the orders of the provincial governor Cirilio Amorós, only the Serrans Towers, the 15th century Quart Towers, and some other archaeological remains and ruins, such as those of the Jewish Gate (Puerta de los Judíos), have survived. The Torres de Serrans were built in the 14th century, 1392, by Pere Balaguer. It was the main entrance to the city and it was originally built with a defensive function. From 1586 until 1887 the towers were used as a prison for nobles. Las Torres de Serranos o Puerta de Serranos son una de las dos puertas fortificadas de la muralla medieval de Valencia (España) que aún permanecen en pie. El conjunto está formado por dos torres poligonales unidas por un cuerpo central donde se abre la puerta propiamente dicha, con forma de arco de medio punto. Es Bien de Interés Cultural desde 1931”
“The Museu de Belles Arts de València is an art gallery in Valencia, founded in 1913. It houses some 2,000 works, most dating from the 14th–17th centuries, including a Self portrait of Diego Velázquez, a St. John the Baptist by El Greco, Goya's Playing Children, Gonzalo Pérez's Altarpiece of Sts.”
“A fantastic building hosting an array of stalls - ham, butchers, fruit and veg, fish, etc. etc. This is a must-see in Valencia!”
