It is interesting to see for a moment but not worth exerting yourself to get there. It is well preserved but is very functional and doesn't give you a feeling for its history

These towers are pretty tall and it's a nice place to visit and take a photo. It's close to the old center of the city.

We came here on a Sunday, when it's free to visit, although there is a small charge on other days. It's a well preserved gate way that used to be part of the city walls and if this is anything to go by, then the walls must have been incredibly impressive. The steps up are fine, but there are limited... More

This is a really well preserved gateway, that used to be part of the city wall, although its almost to clean! You pay two euros at the base of the gateway and then can spend as long as you like working your way to the top. There are three levels on the way up, each with different areas that you... More

Well worth a visit for the history and the views of Valencia. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants in the surrounding area to stop after making the climb.

The Torres de Serrano was constructed in the 14th century and was one of the principal gateways to the old city. Today the towers and gate still stand and are very clean and a hallmark of the city.

The centre of Valencia is worth walking through and one place worth spending a wee while over is this tower that dominates part of the old town. It was free the day we went though I see it may cost €2.00. You are allowed to climb all the way to the top of this old gate tower that was finished... More

My girlfriend and I stumbled upon this beauty by accident. I was pleasently suprised that for only a couple of euros we were allowed to go in/on. If the steep climb in the heat doesn't make you breathless, the view will. From the top you can see big parts of the city. It takes little imagination to see guards standing... More

Nice lil monument of Spain! I was raging though when I asked at the main desk was there an admission fee to climb to the top! It was only 2 quid, but after I payed it, I realized that anyone could easily get to the top without paying any sort of fee, so if visiting this, you should chance your... More
