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

We didn't exactly go inside as we took a tour bus to see the surroundings (the tour is not worth it, by the way. There aren't that many attractions to see in one route so you'll do fine by bus or subway, and it's cheaper). The architecture is nice, Gothic style like many other attractions of the sort in Valencia.... More

Climb to the top, it is really worth the view. You can see all around the city. I took a picture out of one of the areas where they shot bows and arrows from. Got lots of great pictures from here and around that area.

This carefully restored section of city wall and gate is the best way to get up high over the city with unobstructed views in all directions. It's certainly impressive just standing under such an imposing structure, much less walking on top of it. Valencia isn't Paris or Venice from a city view standpoint, but it's worth a climb.

There are superior views of the rooftops from these towers. And this is also a good point to observe activities in the Turia riverbed (three footbal fields directly below). Read some history about this towers and imagine how it was when this was still part of city walls.
