Situada en el casco histórico, por fuera parece un edificio antiguo pero normal. Por dentro es preciosa. Visita obligada.Located in the historical district, outside it seems a normal old building. Inside, it is beautiful. Visit obliged.show original
Integenstelling tot de kathedraal, hoef je hier geen toegang te betalen. Schitterend interieur. Vervelend dat bij de ingangen, zoals bij vele kerken in Valencia, bedelaars zitten.Unlike the Cathedral, you pay no access here. Superb Interior. Annoying that at the entrances, as at many churches in Valencia, beggars.show original

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.
