The Tower of Serrans and the Towers of Quart

The Quart and Serranos Towers are the two gates that existed to access the medieval Christian wall built in the 14th century and which are still preserved today. These two monuments are among the most important in Valencia as they reflect the military architecture of the period.

The Serranos Tower, located to the north, has this name because the road connected with the Serranos region and, in turn, linked the cities of Zaragoza and Barcelona with Valencia. As a curious fact, during the civil war some of the works of art from the Prado Museum were guarded to prevent looting or theft.

On the other hand, on the facade of the Quart Towers you can still see the cannon hits it received during the Spanish Civil War. It is so called because in the past, if you followed the path it took you to the Valencian municipality of Quart de Poblet.

One of the things you can do when you go to these places is to go up and admire the late Valencian Gothic structures or the parts where fragments of the Muslim wall are still preserved. To get to the Quart Towers from the Original Domino House Hotel, you have to take the bus line 92 and walk for 5 minutes. On the other hand, to get to the Serrans Tower, you have to get on the line 4 bus and walk for 10 minutes.
