Serranos Towers

Plaza de los Fueros, s/n; 46003 - Valencia

TOURISTIC AREA: Historical center

Valencia's medieval wall

Under the supervision of Pere Balaguer, construction began in 1392. The towers were designed to be defensive structures at one of the busiest city gates. They were saved from demolition when the city walls were knocked down in 1865 and used as a prison for the nobility between 1586 and 1887. The back of the towers have been opened so that the pointed arches and the vaulted domes can now be seen from the Plaza de los Fueros. The Towers represent an excellent example of gothic architecture.

The Serranos Towers were used both as a defensive feature of the city and also as a triumphal arch. Currently, the most outstanding event that takes place at the feet of the towers is the Crida, when on the last Sunday in February the Fallas

Queen of Valencia welcomes all Valencians and visitors to the Fallas and calls on them to begin the festivities.

The choice of this emblematic place is to symbolise the arrival of outsiders to Valencia centuries ago along the Serranos trail.
