What people say

"Torres de Serranos makes a great starting point into the old center. The hefty medieval gate towers marked an entry point through the fortified medieval wall that once surrounded the old city at its outermost perimeter. The original Christian wall was dismantled in 1865 to allow for city expansion and consisted of twelve such gates, one of two still standing (the other is Torres de Quart). A third gate, reduced to a footprint, is Portal dels Jueus or Puerta de los Judeos which can be seen at Plaça dels Pinazos in Sant Francesc (above the Colón metro station). The view from above is expansive. To the north is Turia Gardens, the outer greenbelt around the city. To the south, Plaça dels Furs provides a marketplace just within the old center. From the opposite side of the plaza, Carrer dels Serrans divides the neighborhoods of El Carmen on the west side and La Seu to the east."
