26 reviews of Plaza de la Virgen

Harmonious

It's a beautiful plaza, hidden behind the Valencia Cathedral. In the plaza you’ll find the Basílica de los Desamparados (the Basilica of the forsaken), a back door to the cathedral, that of the Apostles and other historic buildings, one is now the Palacio de la Generalitat (Government Palace), the other has become a public library ... All around the square is ancient, historical, and very harmonious. Furthermore, the plaza is quiet, pedestrian, like time has stopped. It's nice to come and sit in the evening when it is not so hot, children are playing, grandparents chatting, and life passes quietly.

The heart of Valencia

Excellent

Beside the plaza de la Cathedral I found this square closed off to traffic and where there are plenty of people enjoying the sun and the relaxed atmosphere. There are a few cafes, from which one can drink a horchata whilst contemplating the Cathedral, the Virgin of the forsaken Church or just simply watch the evening pass. The Neptune fountain is found here in honour of the Turia River, from this plaza many streets have their origin allowing us to get to know the centre of Valencia. A highly recommended visit.

Valencian protagonist

It is the ground Zero of the historic centre of Valencia. Meeting place of Valencians', tourists, young, old, musicians, skaters.... All kinds of people and activity. Protagonist of the major festivals and public events in Valencia. A Place with great history behind it, since the Greek era. Such a mix of antiquity, modernity and diversity give it a special atmosphere, especially on spring nights.
