Monumental witness of the walls that once surrounded Valencia, they have been the main entrance to the city for centuries. Their doors were opened to welcome many kings and their walls protected the treasures of the Museo del Prado during the 1936 civil war.
Built in the 14th century, the north door of Valencia is inspired in the towers that give access to the Monastery of Poblet. However, the Valencian doors were modernised and conceived as a big arch of triumph to show Valencia as a rich and powerful city in that time.
From the top, you can enjoy one of the best views of the city: it offers privileged views of the Turia Gardens in their entirety. One of the most pleasant tours depart from these towers to go down the Turia Gardens towards the sea and the City of Arts and Sciences.
