Travel Recap: Las Torres de Serranos

11-39.5 torres de serranos

We completed our day-long overview of Valencia sites (see part 1 and part 2) by arriving at the Torres de Serranos about 20-25 minutes before they closed.  The employees’ early closing practices gave us closer to 15-20 minutes, but climbing the towers in the evening light was worth it (and the 2 euros charge).

Finally descending, we walked down to the old doors and back into the city through the arched doorway.
