Your Opinion Counts
Gigantic Renaissance monastery, with a spectacular color due to the order. Guided visit previously arranged.
María José lives it and enjoys it and that transfers it to the visitors. To stay with your mouth open.
I got married in this Church. My son was baptized and he also took his first communion here. I keep very special moments from this place; and the Priests who officiated each mass are the reason that those moments were unforgettable, for their kindness and their closeness to us. The Church captivated me the first time I entered.
Just 14 km from Valencia is the Puig monastery, a very good experience to have visited this place and the guide named María José, very nice, explaining everything in a super cordial dialogue with her, I recommend a visit to the monastery, a mythical site for Valencians where the conquest of our city was held for only 4€, great visit, thank you very much for everything.
It is incredible, well cared for, many details that the guide tells you, you do not have to go abroad to see things. Here in Valencia there are also them. It is a wonder!
An architectural and artistic gem of a category. We made the visit with a magnificent guide, María José, who valued it with professionalism, knowledge and kindness.
It is a spectacular building. Only you say that from different kilometers, by road, you can see it… It is one of the buildings more representative of the identity and the history of the Valencian Country. A side, the printing museum that lodges in the interior is highly notable.
