These twin towers are in excellent condition and provide a majestic gateway into the old part of Valencia. We didn't explore them further but you can climb around them and the views must be fantastic over the city and the old river bed.

The Serranos and Quart barbicans are at opposite sides in the city walls, and look very different. It's well worth starting at Xativa, walking to the Torres de Quart and then through the old city to Serranos, before walking around to see the sights.

Lovely towers, we couldn't visit them cause we saw them by night, but it was a very nice walking for the night! We visited also the Quart Torres, but the Serrano Torres we're more spectacular!

Built in late 14th century, the tower is an impressive gothic architecture for city gate. Take view from Pont de Serrano at front of the gate or from Plaza de Furs at the back. Notice two towers in pentagon-shaped, connected by a common gallery, and decorated with gothic designs on the borders. You can climb up to the terraces to... More

This is one of the main focal point of Valencia. The Torres are beautiful. It takes just a few minutes to look at. Nothing much to add but need to be seen.

If you are brave enough to climb to the top, you will get an amazing 360 view of Valencia. There are varying levels to climb up so you can still take in the sights however far up you can make.

Emerging from the old town to the former bed of the river Turia, you come to these towers. They're beautiful to look at from all sides. I was most impressed that in this beautiful city well take advantage of the former riverbed. Parks, playgrounds, sports grounds. Beautiful.

This is a spectacular pair of towers, which were an essential part of the defensive wall around the old city. If you are feeling energetic, you can also walk up to the top, but check opening times.
