  • It is small but it is worth a visit of his paintings and Baroque chapels, as well as the image of the Virgin which is also nice.

  • I went through many churches, Basilicas and cathedrals in the world, but in this Basilica was where many of the faithful found praying. You have something very special, visitala sentila Miguel Buenos Aires Argentina

  • Located at Plaza de la Virgen-the historic centre of Valencia, the basilica was built in the 17th century and preserves every detail and apparent wealth in your exterior and interior. Attention to the painting of the dome ... simply divine!! It is worth visiting to meet.

Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.
