  • several friends once a year make a village trip to Valencia and spent the day. First we are going to have breakfast at the mercadfo of jesus and then we go to the Town Hall square to buy the Christmas lottery, then give a tour of the streets of the old town and we ended up at the square of the spectacular Virgin, and then we are going to eat a buffet than this buenisimo rodo at necco.

  • Particular Church, to central plant with asymmetric dome located right in the main square of Valencia. It's the usual background of all major cultural and religious events that take place in the city. Honestly I found very uninteresting when compared to other churches of Valencia. It's worth visiting because it's right downtown, but you should not have high expectations and above all, you must be aware that if you have little time go anywhere else. @gargio76
  • Very beautiful church build in the 17th century. It is not very big, but attract with beauty, it is the church for local valencianos. The amount of fresh flowers around the main altar is magnificent, the nice smell from the flowers is divine.
  • Once you have been inside the basilica go around the back of the building and look for the glass doors, there is a small museum of religious art upstairs. It cost 2€ and you get a guided tour in Spanish.
  • Part of a wonderful plaza. Great area to hang out. Note the unusual Star of David in the design of the basilica.
  • Nice church with rich decorated walls and ceiling.
