Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Valencian Country / Province of Valencia / Valencia / Basílica de la Mare de Déu dels Desemparats
For an authentic, beautiful attraction, visit Basílica de la Mare de Déu dels Desemparats and admire the statue and its surroundings. The female figure was constructed in a Gothic style with a Byzantine face and long hair decorated with jewels. This woman is a Catholic apparition attributed to the Virgin Mary, patroness of Valencia, and also one of seven patrons of the autonomous communities of Spain. The statue is set in a lively square in the center of old Valencia. Don’t miss the nearby cathedral and church. This site gets very crowded with tourists.

Basílica de la Mare de Déu dels Desemparats reviews
Featuring a very realistic image of the Virgin Mary, this Basilica is right next to the Cathedral and one sees many faithful going in to pray. Tip: It has a souvenir/religious items store inside. more »
Beautiful church with a stunning altar and image of the Virgin, located on the magnificent Plaza de la Virgen. Stop in for some quiet contemplation and a break from the hustle and bustle of town. more »
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.
