Valencia, a little further away!

- The Serranos and Quart; this Gothic architecture was used for three centuries to imprison the nobility. The towers are the remains of the thick walls.This tower served as a prison for women in the past. Today it houses the Museum Locksmith here.
- Lonja de la Seda; without a doubt the most unique building in Valencia. Lonja had become the largest market in Europe, mainly for the silk trade. Discover the treasures that preserves this beautiful cathedral. Meanwhile, this building is placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
