  • The basilica is a temple of great interior beauty, where the patron saint of Valencia is located, which is located next to the cathedral and the Plaza de la Reina.

  • The importance of this Basilica is that it is the location of the patron saint of the city and the Valencian community. In May it must be something unique to see his transfer surrounded by devotees in the Plaza de la Virgen

  • Looks good but you won't spend more then 5 to 10 minutes here so good for a quick visit.
  • The monument church is truely amazing. Bút - so totally overcrowded! Too many tourists, walking in and out, talking while the service is celebrated .... sorry, but this is no respect to this amazing basilica. Nor to the service. Maybe its less annoying in winter time and at the first service early in the morning... the intimicy is completely missing. This is just another tourist attraction. Sad but true. Take it like that and you will not be disappointed.
