Best places to see in Spain

Raxoi Palace
Landmarks
This palace literally can’t be missed. Flanking Obradoiro Square with its imposing neo-classical façade, this long building is one of the city’s most monumental structures. The details on its reliefs are best seen from the outside. The reliefs on its central portico depict the mythical “Battle of Clavijo”, a key concept in the Christian expulsion of the Muslims from Spain.

La Giralda and Seville Cathedral
Monuments
Mad ambition. In 1401, church authorities decided to build a cathedral on top of a dilapidated mosque. “Let’s build such a big and beautiful church that people will think we’re mad”, they said. The result is the biggest Gothic cathedral in the world - a zany tableau of spiky spires and flying buttresses. Don’t miss the repurposed minaret, La Giralda. It’s a true city icon.

La Macarena Basilica
Landmarks
Hey, Macarena! La Macarena may be a global byword for twee choreography, but for Sevillanos, it’s the name of their brilliant basilica. An impressive edifice it is too – a gleaming white and mustard façade conceals a riot of Neo-Baroque excess inside. Gold leaf and saintly sculptures are everywhere you look. The Macarena Virgin stands at the centre, shedding tears for humanity.

Quart Towers
Popular Areas
Quart in the crossfire. This pair of cylindrical towers used to form part of the old city walls back in the 15th century. In 1808, Napoleon’s forces besieged Valencia, strafing the Quart Towers with bullets and cannonballs. Two-hundred years later, the dents from the French cannon remain, now used as nesting holes for resourceful Valencian birdlife.

Maestranza Bullring
Landmarks
Are you a fan of human-bovine combat? If so, Maestranza’s the place for you. This hallowed arena is Spain’s high temple of bullfighting. Statues of great “toreros” line the perimeter, frozen in haughty poses. Inside, crimson barricades encircle the sandy space, silent witnesses to all manner of gory glory and bombastic swagger. It’s haunting, magnificent and very divisive.
Accommodations near Maestranza Bullring
Valencia Silk Exchange
Monuments
Not a bad place to do business. This 15th-century building was once the heart of Spain’s silk trade. At Valencia’s economic peak, merchants came from all corners of the Mediterranean. If you stand under the spiral-pattern pillars and close your eyes, the footsteps echoing across marble tiles will transport you back to a time when traders did their silky-smooth business here.
