Torres de Serranos, Valencia

4.4
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.

  • We came to this place when visiting the old town and the location is magnificent with the old river not too far from there. There are plenty of photo opportunities here and the architecture and design...  more »
  • If you go to the entrance runs it seems like Escher here his inspiration from. Fun to climb and there is a (more than) half an hour by and over to walk around. Nice views of the city and on the Turiapark.

  • Considering this is one of the iconic places to see in Valencia, I think it was well worth it. The Towers greet you as you stroll into what would be the old city then. We went in June so it could get crowded if you are planning a photo or more.
  • The historical entrance to the medieval city of Valencia. Very well preserved northern entrance to the city. Offers some brilliant views of the city and Turia River Park. Very nice bars nearby. This area is popular with youth and university students and is close to El Carmen.
  • Really nice, a must see. This one is even better than the torres de quart. It is well placed and the view from the top is just awesome. A must see in Valencia
  • Excellent value for money...very cheap... beautiful historic building and wonderful views of the city.. take a drink, would even be great place for little picnic or to sit and read...quite tiring as loads of steps and be wary if scared of heights... fantastic thing to do for all the family
  • Very cool piece of history! Not a lot to do other than look at it, but impressive nonetheless and worth a peek

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.
