  • Feelings in a single square. Sunny and crowded. Perfect to enjoy every day.

  • place of passage into town is a magnificent square framed by a huge fountain, which perhaps should be cleaned more often, in front of the Church of the Virgin. Continuing along a narrow street you reach the Cathedral side entrance, just inside on the right the chapel of the Holy Chalice.

  • Visit a must if you come to Valencia. On 17 and 18 March is hosting the offering of flowers in honor to the Virgen de los Desamparados. The eve of the celebration of its day, the second Domingo de Mayo, there are regional dances all night, and by morning "transfer" (refrain not devout). In one of the corners of the Cathedral, close to the Micalet Street, is the door of the Apostles, which is held the traditional Tribunal de las Aguas. If abjas along this street you can go to the Cathedral, where, apart from seeing her, you have access to the Micalet Tower (El Miguelete), where after climbing a few steps, you have views of beautiful Valencia. In the square, it is essential to enter the Basilica of the Virgin, very beautiful and place of worship for the Valencian believers. Before go to the Barrio del Carmen, must sit on a terrace to have a drink and enjoy the environment.

  • Beautiful square in the heart of the historical center of the city. The scene of all major cultural events, religious and folkloric throughout the year. Place always animated, you can sit at one of the tables of the many bars and cafes and see the city pass you before! Very charming even at night with the cathedral and the church lit! Do not miss @gargio76
  • lovely little plaza, gets shady and cold later in the day. nice to hangout and have some beers and watch the world go round.
  • Beautiful plaza. Cathedral in the plaza is gorgeous. Lots of restaurants in plaza
  • Great place to sit and watch people go by. Great for lunch or dinner and a great meeting place
  • Surrounded by church, this location has a great view and ambiance. You can easily enjoy the various restaurants in the vincinity, and you can see the maybe 1-2 small children feeding the birds or running through the flock of birds on the ground. Sit back and enjoy some good food, a cold chilled beer and relax as you enjoy a well deserved meal in a beautiful location, while enjoying the cool summer breeze.
