Juan Llorens is one of the main nightlife areas in Valencia with lots of bars, restaurants and discotheques.
It is very close to El Carmen and the city centre, called Ciudad Vella.
The neighbourhood of El Carmen is 1000 years old. Some of the most important monuments in this area are Plaza Redonda, Torres de quart, Portal de Valldigna and the Iglesia Del Carmen.
One of the main features in El Carmen are the original holes in the massive towers of the Torres De Quart made from the cannonballs from the time of Napoleon. The ancient winding streets of the Barrio del Carmen contain buildings dating to Roman and Arabic times. The Cathedral, built between the 13th and 15th century, is primarily of Gothic style, but contains elements of Baroque and Romanesque architecture. Beside the Cathedral is the Gothic Basilica of the Virgin (Basílica De La Virgen De Los Desamparados). The 15th century Serrano and Quart towers are part of what was once the wall surrounding the city.
UNESCO has recognized the Late Gothic silk exchange (La Lonja de la Seda) as a World Heritage Site. The modernist Central Market (Mercado Central) is one of the largest in Europe. The main railway station, Estación Del Norte, is built in art deco style.
Lots of young people and lively bars contrast old stone bridges and antique door-knockers giving El Carmen a unique charm.
There are loads of bars, restaurants, pubs and discotheques to spend a night of partying. Unique shops and boutiques in different styles, from vintage to modern brands, you will find them all over El Carmen.
In the city centre, to the south of the Carmen, you will find all of the international boutiques and the national commercial brands.
