The cathedral, facing Queen's square in the center of the old town of Valencia, is a historical building whose construction began in the 13th century and was finally completed in the 18th century. Because it took so long to build, it is characterized by a mixture of Gothic, Romanesque, Renaissance, and Baroque styles. The 63-meter-high Miguelete Tower is a familiar landmark of the old town.
Valencia is the third largest city in Spain facing the Mediterranean Sea. Valencia has long flourished as a port city, and in addition to the numerous historical buildings that adorn the center of the city, it is blessed with a wealth of tourist resources, including the innovative design of the City of Arts and Sciences and the Falles. Known for its mild climate and rich produce, including oranges and rice, Valencia also offers a gourmet tour of its markets and restaurants.
