These amazing defensive towers are a twin set that in the middle have a gate that is today always open. It used to be part of the medieval wall of Valencia, built in the 15th century. The towers have seen many wars, from the French War of Independence to the War of Succession and the Spanish Civil War. We especially like this set of towers because of its character, with marks still left of canons that hit it in conflicts past. You can tour the top of the towers, which gives fantastic views of the city. Tickets are only €2. Click here to get more information. ......
