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.

  • The church is nice, and I usually don't like churches. It is definitely a functioning one. But the best part is going up the 120 or so steps winding your way to the top where you emerge through a sort...  more »
  • The church itself is nice to visit but climbing up the tower is really what you want to do. The climb isn't too bad and the views are worth it - probably better than the Migulette as you can see the c...  more »
  • Small church with a tower. 2 Euros to go up tower. Good views of the surrounding area and especially The Redonda. If you want to get to the upper level take the ladder if you don't mind heights. Quite...  more »

  • A very small church sqeezed between other buildings. It has a very beautiful bell tower, which centuries ago used to be the tallest building in Valencia and a reference point for the sailors navegating to the harbour of the city.
  • On a sunny day you must climb up the tower. Great view over the city.
  • A beautiful cathedral without the excessive decorations.
  • One of Valencia's landmarks, its bell tower being the highest building in the old town, unfortunately not open to the public. :( Still 5out of 5 stars! :)
  • Proud bell tower rules the view over Plaza de la Reine. Narrow barock tower from 17th century, with church dated even around 1245. Watching the tower in the sunset light is spectacular.
