This historical walking tour covers the very heart of the ancient city between the two remaining medieval gates of Valencia, which formerly had 12 surrounding walls. Today only a few of the gates still remain, all rich with interesting secrets. Your tour will begin at Plaça dels Furs (Charters Square) inside the Torres de Serranos, which is the most well-preserved gate, originally from the 14th century. Along Serrano street, you will stop by a local oenotheque. This is a special storage place for wine to age in! Here, you will taste a local and vintage Bobal redwine as well as a regional liquor called Mistela. Each drink will be paired with a complementary and enticing tapa.
Your next destination point, Palau de la Generalitat will lead you into a Gothic designed building that houses regional government offices. The building is located along Carrer de Cavallers which is a majestic street that used to house King James 1st knights! As you continue to walk along Carrer de Cavallers (Knights Lane) your guide will point out the majestic features hiding along the street that many visitors wouldn't even notice!
After your walk down Knights Lane, you will stop in a cozy bodega for a glass of Agua de Valencia and have a traditional Valencian appetizer. The stroll through the city will finish once you arrive at Torres de Quart, one of the two remaining gates in Valencia known for the darkest secrets of Medieval Valencia!
