Plaza de la Virgen, Valencia

In the heart of the city, the Plaza de la Virgen is a picturesque square paved in creamy marble and surrounded by some of Valencia's most charismatic historic buildings. Fully pedestrianised, the square is home to the elaborate Cathedral of Santa María, built in the Valencian Gothic style, the seventeenth century Basilica of the Virgen de los Desamparados, with its extraordinary blue-tiled dome, and the handsome Palace of the Generalitat, the seat of the Valencian government.
