Admire the impressive neo-Gothic facade, towers, and ornate interior of Basílica san Vicente Ferrer, and pay your respects to missionary and logician St. Vincent Ferrer.

Enter to view the stained-glass windows throughout the structure, which pay homage to his work. The church has a Latin cross plan with five naves; the main nave features elegant pointed arches and Corinthian capitals.

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.
