  • The Basilica of San Vicente Ferrer, (Church of the fathers Dominicans), is located in the Central Cirilo Amorós Street, very near from the famous Colon market, another emblematic building of the city, and at the same time not far from the Plaza de Toros de Valencia. This basilica is Gothic. It is also known as the Church of the Dominican fathers, it has plant in the form of a Latin cross, Atrium, five ships, cruise, four chapels, and apse with ambulatory. It is one of the monuments in the area that need to know. Highlights especially its facade, very pretty, that appears between them buildings modern of the area. Before access to its interior have some small gardens, very nice. The Church was preparing for a wedding, and was very well decorated. It is worth to visit and admission is free.

  • A great representative of Catholicism. Fairly accurate outside and solemn inside. If you raise your head, being in the Center, you can see the huge dome and the Sun's rays piercing it. In Valencia, many monuments and ecclesiastical buildings, but here, it seemed to me, rarely tourists, this temple for the local population.

  • A beautiful Basilica on the outside and on the inside. Architecture is the key of its charm.
  • Beautiful on the outside, beautiful on the inside. The stained glass windows are very nice. In addition, the garden outside is very nice. If you pass by the area, come to see her, you'll love.

  • I had seen it many times on the outside, but as everything that you have close, never spend you time, until my cousin decided to marry there, I then discovered it. Its neoclassical is slender and elegant and the interior is cozy and warm, sober and wide, beautiful.

  • All the solemnity and importance of the neo-Gothic in a neighborhood church. Serenity and proportions. Severity and collegiate wisdom.
