Its worth a visit

Situated in the heart of the city of Valencia, The cathedral of Valencia is worth a visit, known as the Cathedral of Santa Maria; its bell tower is a highlight, nicknamed the ‘Miguelete’ in Spanish or in Valencian ‘Micalet’.

The current cathedral was founded on the ruins of the first cathedral in Valencia dating back to the sixth century Roman-Visigoth. Although now you can mainly only see the Gothic influence, it also appreciates the Baroque and Renaissance styles’.

The interior features a painting by Goya in the Borja chapel, and it’s also worth a visiting the Cathedral Museum.

Original

Built on a Roman temple and later a mosque it dates back to the thirteenth century. The cathedral does not belong to a unitary or dominant style; it has styles ranging from the Romanesque to the Baroque, as witnessed by each of its three doors: the Principle door also known as Iron (Baroque), the Apostle door (Gothic) and the Palace door (Romanesque). It is not a typical cathedral; there are distinct elements that make it different for example the entrance is at an obtuse angle.

In the very centre

The Valencia cathedral, known popularly as "Seu", is a large Gothic building that stands above all for its overdone facade and high bell tower, called the ‘Miguelete’ that can be climbed, albeit in a very short time period (11:30 to 13:00). The cathedral is much prettier outside, with several highly ornamented doors, than on the inside with a style much more simple and restrained.
