Day or night, these twin towers are dramatic and cost a few euros to climb up.

Visit this place at night and watch these towers in a new light. Unfortunately, my night-shots of this site don't do it any justice!

A good landmark to switch from exploring Jardines del Turia to meandering through the old town. We spotted our first David de Limón street art nearby.

The Serranos gate is located near the old Turia Riverbed, and was originally one of the twelve gates which made up part of the old city's walls. This gothic structure was once the main entrance into Valencia and has been well preserved, being one of the main attractions the city has to offer. It now costs two euros to enter, and you can climb to the top and look out over the city. A good visit for those interested in history and military architecture.

Make a dramatic entrance through to the Historic city within just 6-7 mins straight through into El Carmen- the city's liveliest most cosmopolitan barrio.

This is one of the most relevant monuments of Valencia. These twin towers were founded in XIV century and took part of city wall system. They formed a gate for travelers coming from Barcelona and Zaragoza directions. It is important place for opening of the Fallas festival.

Las Torres de Serranos son otro de los puntos emblemáticos de Valencia. Son consideradas la entrada gótica más grande de una ciudad en toda Europa. }

Constituyen, junto a las Torres de Quart, una de las puertas de la muralla que daba paso a la ciudad de Valencia. Fueron el símbolo del poder de la ciudad en la antiguedad.

Fueron construidas a finales del siglo 14 como parte de la fortificación de la ciudad. Al principio fueron usadas como celdas de prisión y también sirvieron como arco triunfal en muchas ocasiones de fiestas y victorias. Desde la cima de las torres se puede disfrutar de unas magníficas vistas de Valencia y del río Turia.

Sin dudas es uno de los puntos que no se pueden perder en la vista a Valencia.

Las Torres y Puerta de Serrano es de lo poco que queda de las antiguas murallas defensivas de Valencia. Es de fines del siglo XIV, de estilo gótico y constituía uno de los principales accesos a la ciudad. No se pierdan verla desde abajo, desde la Alameda, impone. Se puede visitar por dentro y subir, es gratuito.

Otra de las maravillas antiguas del centro de Valencia. Si llegas a la plaza de la Virgen y continuas por calle Serrano ya la vas a ver de lejos. Parece como un pequeño fuerte o castillo, pero es una de las doce puertas de la antigua muralla cristiana de la ciudad, del año 1400. Lo mejor es que puedes subir a la parte de arriba totalmente gratis y tener vistas del centro histórico de Valencia y de La Alameda. Cuando bajas te tomas un cafecito o una caña en algún bar de la Plaza Furs.
