Torres de Serranos, Valencia

(4.2/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Torres de Serranos, constructed during the late 14th century and one of the best preserved monuments of the city, once formed part of the city wall. You can easily imagine medieval royalty entering between these towers with pomp and circumstance. Later, over three centuries, the towers served as a prison for noblemen and knights. As long as your legs will carry you up the steps, you can catch great views from the top, looking down on soccer fields and the Turia riverbed.

  • Climb the towers of Serranos is an experience not to be missed in Valencia, the rooftop terrace you can take panoramic pictures of the city, the visit is free and the towers freighted with history, immaculately kept, without guardians and free, simply by relying on the civilization of the people, is not a visit for everyone, stairs, spiral stairs steep and often very high, it is certainly not for the disabled , must be done with a bit of attention, were built in 1398 and were used as prisons as well as medieval defensive towers, access was gained to the city through them.

  • there are good views if you climb to the top. The skyline isn't all that exciting, but it's still fun to climb and have a look at the nearby bridges and the park 
  • Part of the walls of the old city, through the gate, went into the city. Avoid civil war during the World War II it was keeping Prado Museum exhibits.

  • It is a nice view from the top and the building itself quite curious. Unfortunately there is absolutely no information available up on the arch about when and how it was used. I recommend Wikipedia - was shocked when I learned that a Governor of the city had the old city walls demolished in the 19th century.
  • Impossible not to visit this historical monument as a symbol of the glorious past of Valencia. Entering go up one floor at a time and you can see the city from a unique perspective. They can see easily all the main tourist attractions of the city as well as enjoying a privileged view of the Turia. A must to visit in the evening (only abroad) because expertly lit. Time required for a visit 45/60 minuti @gargio76
  • Nice place to visit you have to be careful to claim the stairs with children it is a little bit dangerous and it is not for people with physical problems. It was free when I went on Sunday.
  • Good views for photos. Nice cafés close by for a quick bite or coffee
  • Nothing spectacular but stil worth visiting. Nice place for taking pics from the top. Prices are cheap.
