Serranos Towers (Torres de Serranos) Tours

Serranos Towers (Torres de Serranos)
The twin stone Serranos Towers (Torres de Serranos), built in the 14th century as Valencia’s main exit toward Barcelona and Northern Spain, are one of only two remaining portions of the original city walls. What once served as prison cells and a triumphal arch are now thought to be the largest Gothic city gateway in Europe.
 
The Basics
A popular photo op and architectural landmark in Valencia, the Serranos Towers are included on most walking, biking, and Segway tours of the city. Once at the towers, visitors can tour the battlements or climb to the top for views over the Turia riverbed and Barrio del Carmen neighborhood. Sightseeing tours that include the Serranos Towers can be combined with a visit to the City of Arts and Sciences or a traditional Valencia paella dinner.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Offering one of the best views of Valencia, the Serranos Towers is a must for photographers.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
  • Be prepared to climb about 50 steps (some without handrails) to reach the top of the towers; there is no elevator.
 
How to Get There
The towers are located just north of the city center and south of Turia Gardens. They’re reachable on foot from most parts of the Old City, or you can take the metro to Alameda Station. Alternatively, arrive as part of a tour that includes round-trip transport.
 
When to Get There
The towers are open to visitors Tuesday to Sunday. Plan to visit first thing in the morning or just before sunset to capture the best photographs of the surrounding city.
 
Things to Do Barrio del Carmen
The Serranos Towers are situated in Valencia’s Barrio del Carmen neighborhood within the Old City. While you’re in the area exploring the Old City gates, swing by the Mossen Sorell Market to shop for gourmet goods, grab a drink at one of the busy pubs in Plaza del Tossal, or visit one of several museums, such as the Museo del Siglo XIX, Valencian Museum of Ethnology, or the house-museum of painter José Benlliure.

Hangman's Route - Theatrical route full of mystery

Hangman's Route - Theatrical route full of mystery

Valencia is a vibrant city full of life. It was also in the Middle Ages. Nobles, merchants of the Silk Road, serranos from the outskirts strolled through its streets ... A cultural amalgam that gave our urban fabric a variety of colors. But Valencia also had a dark part linked to executions and practices closely related to the inquisition and torture. The death penalty was in force in the city until the mid-19th century. The large squares we are walking through today: Almoina, the Mercado ... have witnessed for the longest periods the cruelest torture and the bloodiest deaths. Do you dare to know all these stories with us? On the tour we will know the story of an illustrious doctor who was tried and executed by the Holy Inquisition for unconventional practices. Innocent or guilty? Participants in the Hangman's Route may make their own personal judgment.
