I recommend a visit to “Ciutat Vella” ,where you can wander through the main squares and most symbolic spots. From Torres de Serranos (Serranos´ Gate) to Estación del Norte (North Station) you can not miss going to venues such as: Plaza de la Virgen (Virgin Square) The Basílica de los Desamparados, Almoina, Plaza de la Reina (Queen Square), The Cathedral, Plaza Redonda (Round Square), Plaza Lope de Vega, Mercado Central (Central Maket), Lonja de la Seda (Silk Exchange Building), Museo Nacional de Cerámica González Martí (The National Ceramics Museum Gonzalez Marti), Plaza del Ayuntamiento (The City Hall), Plaza de Toros (The bull ring) and Estación del Norte.If you decide to start the tour the reverse, from the North Station to Serranos´Gate, you can stop at the nearest tourist info to ask for any information about the city (Address: Plaza del Ayuntamiento, nº 1).
DO YOU KNOW THAT?
