History Museum
“This is a good museum about the different periods of the history of the beautiful city of Valencia. The artifacts and objects on display were very nicely presented. There are loads of interactive things too which I think are great for kids too (it is also fun as an adult! :D) with videos, video subtitles for hard of hearing guests, and more. I really liked the interior of the museum too (an old aqueduct I believe) , there were information books in English and other languages so that all the descriptions of things on display were accessible in different languages. ”

Historic Site
“Built by Pere Bonfill, who was inspired by the Castell Nuovo towers in Naples, the Quart Towers represent a good example of late Gothic military constructions. They were conceived as defensive gates for the city and until 1874 were known as the Torres de la Cal (The Limestone Towers), since the limestone that came into the city had to come in through these gates. The back of the towers was opened to allow a view of the inside. It was the women´s prison for some time.”
