Torres de Serranos – Valencia

Torres de Serranos – Valencia

While I was in Valencia last year, I was on my way to meet my friend and I came across the Serranos Gate or Torres dels Serrans (in Valencian). I had some time to kill, so I went to explore.

The Serranos Gate was 1 of 12 gates that made up the city walls of Valencia. It was built in the 14th century and used to defend the city from attacks.

It is still seen as the main entrance to the city and, today, if you climb up to the top of this Gothic-style monument, you will get some amazing views over the city and beyond.

Even though it was January and not that warm, the climb upwards still made me sweat!

But, it was great to see how well-preserved this lovely old gate still is.

Finally, one more flight of stairs to climb and you are at the very top.

If you go to Valencia, make sure you take the time to climb the Serranos Tower!
