Valencia Free Walking Tour Itinerary

We'll begin this guided tour of Valencia in Plaza de la Virgen, where we'll learn about the stories behind its main monuments, the Virgen de los Desamparados Basilica, the Turia fountain...

Two important Valencian traditions take place here: the floral offering during the 'Fallas' (a celebration of St. Joseph held every year in the Valencia region) and the Tribunal of Waters (a tradition which settles disputes regarding the use of irrigation water by farmers declared UNESCO cultural heritage). We'll observe the renaissance architecture of the Town Hall, headquarters of the Valencian autonomous government.

The free walking tour then continues to the Miguelete, the belltower of the Valencia Cathedral. We'll tell you some of the anecdotes and unusual facts surrounding the church, before heading to the gothic Llotja de la Seda, reminding us of the 15th-century heyday, when Valencia was an important commercial centre.

From the 15th century, we jump directly to 1914, crossing the street where you can find the Valencia Central Market, a fine example of Valencian modernism, an architectural style which took hold at the beginning of the 20th century.

And we'll visit the Serranos Towers, which along with the Quart Gate, is the main testament to the medieval walls which once surrounded Valencia.

And having seen some of the picturesque places left to see in the city, our tour ends back at the Plaza de la Virgen.
