  • Entering the Baroque 17th century Real Basílica De Nuestra Señora De Los Desamparados, it is the most worth to look up. The frescoes of the vault are impressive paintings of Palomino.  more »

  • Located in the Plaza of Vigen. Beautiful basilica, with some frescoes on the ceiling that are wonderful. On the altar you can admire the Virgen de los Desamparados patroness of Valencia.

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.
