  • Last week, and coinciding with a few days of vacation in the Levante area, raise me to visit the convent of Santo Domingo. Comment that the reason for wanting to visit the monument, is given because almost 40 years ago, I spent 1 year of my life in that building, since I was doing my military service there, when the Captain General was D. Jaime Milans del Bosch and Ussía, well known later for his involvement in the attempted military coup. After some calls, I could contact the military charge of the Centre, who without too many difficulties, agreed to allow us access to the grounds, outside the established dates. Arrived the day and the hour set, and we received the Cape King. It is a very nice person, who knows the details of this architectural gem, and who knows to express it in a clear and entertaining way. The visit lasted about an hour and a half, and I can assure that it was very short, given the pleasant experience. The visit does not require any disbursement. Through this review, I want to leave a record of the kindness of the army towards a citizen of "on foot", as well as to express my admiration for the great work they do in the maintenance of heritage. Regarding the convent, and especially to the cloister and the Kingdom Hall, show my absolute admiration for a work of such a level. It is not always possible to see, much less play elements of our history, corresponding to the 13TH century. I would like to take advantage of, to recommend the visit of this wonder.

  • Spectacular monumental complex that sits on a lot donated by King James 'the Conqueror' in 1239 the order of Santo Domingo. FAÇADE OF THE CONVENT. It is located in Plaza de Tetuan. It was paid by King Felipe II and calls "cover altarpiece", Renaissance style. CLOISTER. Very well taken care of flamboyant Gothic style, with arches targeted on each side. The galleries covered with vaults, nerves of stone and brick snap Vault. In the center of the square courtyard, a beautiful gothic rim well. CHURCH OF ST. DOMINIC. Also called Chapel of San Vicente. Three phases of construction can be seen perfectly. The present Church is of neoclassic style. On the main altar a Baroque altarpiece and a niche with a size of S. vicente. On the two doors of the presbytery there are two medallions, dedicated to the father and the mother of San Vicente Ferrer. He is currently a military Church. CHAPEL OF THE KINGS. Intended originally to host the mortal remains of Alfonso "the magnanimous and his wife". There are the Marquis of Zenete buried in a beautiful marble Tomb. Anervada very unique vault and that as a black layer covers the whole chapel in sign of mourning. Open to the public Thursday, unless a public holiday, from 11.30 to 13 hours. CHAPTER ROOM. Dates from the beginning of the 14th century and is surrounded by a broad base of stone that the friars occupied when they were called to chapter. In this place they took the S. Vicente Ferrer and S. Luis Bertran habits. They also came to be held Cortes Generales. Four fine columns ascieden to open as palm trees in a beautiful vault that appears to float on the stay. It was the Gothic model that inspired the Lonja of Mallorca and the Lonja of Valencia silk. We can also see in the front wall, the grave of the Boil. THE THRONE ROOM. Old refectory of the convent. Built in Renaissance style, in the keys to the vault appear Dominican characters. Currently used for military and civil protocol events. S.VICENTE FERRER CELL. Reconstruction of a cell on the same site which was used by the Valencian Holy. There is no artistic value. All the monuments you can visit for free, previously requesting permission to phone 96 196 32 37. Must visit for lovers of architecture, history and the Valencian heritage

  • me mola!!
  • Shows only of the Gothic Valencia with the cloister of the convent and the original Chapel next to the Church, only comparable to the Lonja of Valencia. Very well preserved. Pity that it is not open to the public. Only you can visit arranging visits with groups.

  • Without a doubt one of the monuments most unknown and impressive in the Centre of Valencia. It is a convent started in the 14th century and retains impressive spaces: the Chapter Hall, from 1310, which reminds us of the Lonja; the Gothic clustro, without a doubt the most interesting of the city; and the chapel of the Kings, the wonder of the art of cut stone in the 15th century. Currently the monumental complex belongs to a barracks military, so it only visits guided way, arranging visit in 96 196 30 38.
