The twin-towered stone gates of the Torres de Serranos are all that remains of Valencia’s original city walls. The imposing 14th century gates were the city’s main exit to Barcelona and northern Spain.
Today the gates are a popular photo stop, and you can climb to the top for great views of Valencia.
Free guided tours take you through the battlements and walkways every day except Mondays.
The Torres de Serranos are in the north of the city center, just south of the Turia Gardens. The closest metro stop is Alameda.
