Valencia Things to Do: 524 reviews and 1,178 photos
Located in the epicentre of the barri, this church has Medieval origins, when it made part of the old monastery of the barefoot carmelites. The church's main facade, however, is Barroque. The Monastery lost its relighious function in the XIX century and it hosted then the first Museum of Fine arts in Valencia, until it was moved to the Seminary of Saint Pius V. The building hosts now a cultural and civic centre and has an interesting Renaissance cloister. The church is the only part of the building that is still used for religious purposes, although nowadays consacrated to the cult of the Saint Cross.
This area is better avoided during the night.
