El Carmen District
One of the most charming areas of Valencia is the Carmen. Placed in the historical helmet, and formerly surrounded by walls, today it is one of the zones of leisure and gastronomy more out-standing of the city. A place to stroll where you can taste, from the most international tapas, to the most local food. There are also countless pubs and discos where you can have a drink. Close to Carmen is the Plaza de la Virgen and the Cathedral of Valencia (13th century). For more than a thousand years, the Puerta de los Apóstoles (Apostles’ Gate) of the Cathedral has held a Water Tribunal every Thursday of the year. This court is the oldest legal institution in force in Europe.
Bus lines 4 and 19, close to Original Domino Houses, can leave you just two minutes from the plaza.
