Neighborhood: Old Quarter

The old city of Valencia was surrounded by a wall of which today there only remain two of its original entrances and a few bits and pieces scattered about. The two entrances are the impressive Torres de Serranos and Torres de Quart towers and gateways. While walking along the narrow and tiny streets in the old quarter, you can find one of the old wall's remaining bits here on Portal de Valldigna street. It is an archway built in 1440 leading into what was the old Arab quarter. This structure is important for historical, cultural, and architectural reasons. From this last perspective, the structure is noteworthy: It consists of a semi-circular arch atop two side pillars. It's worth a visit.
