4.2
#18 of 27 in Historic Sites in Valencia
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. Ordained as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church, St. Vincent was a Venetian Dominican friar. The basilica was erected in 1906 to commemorate him, and includes a dramatic exterior and interior. 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. The facade has two impressive towers, each 39 m (128 ft) in height, with needle-like spires at the top.

    It is big and with good sound, also because the Dominicans tend to preach well and you hear 'things' that are worth

    Very interesting the facade, large and with a single Tower, gives a small square with a fountain. The interior is sober, but okay. I not entered in many churches in Valencia, but it can be the most beautiful.

    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. It stands out above all its facade, very nice, hovering between the modern buildings in the area. Before accessing the interior you have 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 quiet church where you can enjoy silence and loneliness
  • A beautiful Basilica on the outside and on the inside. Architecture is the key of its charm.

  • Beautiful basilica dedicated to San Vicente Ferrer. Inside is a relic of the Saint. Worthy of visit.

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.
