  • Impressive building military which makes that you can only visit twice a year. Its cloister and, above all, the Chapterhouse deserve to see on a daily basis since they are at the height of the other great Valencian Gothic building as it is La Lonja. It is worth thinking of opening days to enjoy it.

  • Annex to the former Captain General of Valencia. The chapel of San Vicente is a military parish of neoclassical style, the organ is a part which cannot be seen. Next door is the chapel Kings, built between 1439 and 1463 to host the Kings of Aragon but it did not. In the centre lies the tomb of the Marquis of Zenete. One side leads to the cloister Gothic, which is a military compound, is from the 14TH century with a garden and a well in the Center. The Chapter Hall is found opposite, also is known as the salon of the Palms by way of columns. On the other side lies the Hall of the throne, s. XVI. From here you access the cell of S. Vicente, place where he lived this famous Dominican, consists of a chapel and a small cell for sleep. This visit was a part of nostalgia, as I remembered my time of mili there parading through the cloister and standing guard on top of the cell of S. Vicente. What was the ancient and illustrious Royal Monastery of Santo Domingo de Valencia of preachers, is the seat of the captaincy General.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Certainly a marvel, a true example of Gothic building, 13TH century, remarkable the Chapterhouse, the Gothic cloister, the chapel of the Kings. Front of the Palacio de Cervelló, that also serve as residence of Kings.

  • 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.
