  • Enjoyed a fun day walking around the area and this church. We were there Holy Week so it was crowded but got to see a lot of holiday activities as well. Churches in Spain are inspiring.  more »

  • It is a building which was monastery, jail and now Valencia library of the Valencian Academy of the language. It is a very important work of the Valencian Renaissance, visit inside the cloister, the Church, the crypt... an interesting visit not only by contemplating the building itself if or also by the story that there is. The facade of the Church is a marvel, a Renaissance located framed by two towers. Important dome over the transept. The interior is very nice. The monastery of San Miguel de los Reyes is now the result of a constructive work carried out along very different epochs or stages: a Muslim farmstead of the 11th century, a monastery of the Cistercian order of the 14th century, a Jeronimo monastery from the 16th century and a 19th-century prison. Guided tours there are weekends free, book in advance. You should visit it.

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.
