Death collosium. While I don't endorse the brutal torture and butchering of majestic horned beasts, bullfighting is undeniably Spain's most grotesquely fascinating, passionate and elite blood sport.
“A fantastic building hosting an array of stalls - ham, butchers, fruit and veg, fish, etc. etc. This is a must-see in Valencia!”
“The Metropolitan Cathedral–Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady of Valencia, alternatively known as Saint Mary's Cathedral or Valencia Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic parish church in Valencia.”
“This is a good place where to go with children and walk around the new buildings in Valencia, a long the old river Turia. ”
“It is an important landmark and one of the best preserved monuments of Valencia. Of the ancient city wall, which was pulled down in 1865 on the orders of the provincial governor Cirilio Amorós, only the Serrans Towers, the 15th century Quart Towers, and some other archaeological remains and ruins, such as those of the Jewish Gate (Puerta de los Judíos), have survived. The Torres de Serrans were built in the 14th century, 1392, by Pere Balaguer. It was the main entrance to the city and it was originally built with a defensive function. From 1586 until 1887 the towers were used as a prison for nobles. Las Torres de Serranos o Puerta de Serranos son una de las dos puertas fortificadas de la muralla medieval de Valencia (España) que aún permanecen en pie. El conjunto está formado por dos torres poligonales unidas por un cuerpo central donde se abre la puerta propiamente dicha, con forma de arco de medio punto. Es Bien de Interés Cultural desde 1931”
“Built by Pere Bonfill, who was inspired by the Castell Nuovo towers in Naples, the Quart Towers represent a good example of late Gothic military constructions. They were conceived as defensive gates for the city and until 1874 were known as the Torres de la Cal (The Limestone Towers), since the limestone that came into the city had to come in through these gates. The back of the towers was opened to allow a view of the inside. It was the women´s prison for some time.”
