Patrimonio Universal por la UNESCO

TOURIST AREA: 
Old City València
 CENTURY: 
XVII

The Church of Santa Catalina is one of the oldest in the city. Its construction goes back to the days of the Reconquest. The eighteenth century Baroque tower housing the belfry is possibly the most notable element, standing out from the rest of the building. The church is composed of three naves with side chapels, crosspiece domes and the apse which includes a chapel. The beautiful and graceful tower offers one of the most picturesque sights in the city. Viewed from the elegant Calle de la Paz, one can admire the five storey construction crowned by a small dome-covered temple. The tower of Santa Catalina is a landmark in Valencia, as well as being the entrance to the popular Barrio del Mercat. Its hexagonal shape reminds us of the Miguelete (the tower adjacent to the Cathedral).
