“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Go in when you see the doors open, you won't be disappointed. Also if you walk past at night and look in the windows of the side doors the Madonna is lit up and it looks just amazing

“Worth a visit.”

We went when the Fallas was on, the statue is covered in fresh flowers, amazing. The Basilica itself is amazing inside.

“The Patron saint of Valencia is here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

The Basilica of Our Lady of the Forsaken is located in the center of the city very close to The Cathedral. It is One of the most significant sites of the historic (old part of) Valencia. In 1981 it was declared a Historic Artistic Monument. It has a great significance among the local people of Valencia, because it houses the patron saint of the city.

Small and beautiful, this definitely deserves some minutes of your time and admiration.

“The Virgin is the queen of the Basilica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

The sculpture of The Virgin is a beautiful work of art. Best of the Basilica is to be there at Mass and testify the fervor of the attendants when singing the himn dedicated to Her.
