Torres de Serranos, Valencia

4.2
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.

  • There was a lovely view from up top. It's so cool to see such an old building with amazing architecture.
  • I really much enjoyed the view. Since it was Sunday when I went there, the entrance was free. This view for the city during sunny day is definitely worth going to the top. If you love panoramas you'll want to check this place :)
  • "Once protecting the city from now people, now stand erect among all residential and business buildings in the city of valencia, spain. Very beautiful view of the city when you make your way up to the top. The workers are very nice, i conversed with one of them every day because i lived 10 feet away from the torres! - Ansel Ponce Diama
  • Ever felt you are in a medieval movie? This can happen to you right here. Bring some snacks, drinks and your favorite book about the middle ages and you are all set to hang out on the towers. Very cool view over the city and the surrounding river. I met a photographer taking photos of kids in traditional "Fallas" costumes. So cute! Not very crowded when I went there. Maybe tourists are a bit lazy observing the missing lift to the top. Entrance fee.
  • Beautiful view and architecture. Interesting place that is mandatory to visit and ask about the history and importance of these.

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.
