Cathedral of Valencia
Paradise on earth
Consecrated in 1238 by Bishop Albalat, it is a first-class constructive work that presents a rich and elegant overlay of architectural styles, built on the foundations of a Roman temple, a Visigothic basilica and the city’s main mosque. It reached its metropolitan status in 1492 by the Cardinal Rodrigo Borja and has elements of singular beauty such as its bell tower, fondly known by the Valencians as Miguelete, its superb chapel of the Holy Chalice or the precious musician angels as clear referent of the Renaissance starting point in Spain. Its three portals: the romanesque Palau, the Apostles in an elegant French Gothic style of the XIV and last but not least Baroque portal “of the Irons”, in the line of the Italian Borromini and Bernini’s style, finishes up a visit of singular beauty that never leaves the visitor indifferent.
