Valencia Day 4 – Visiting the ancient Cathedral of Valencia, Spain

While finishing up the Prehistoric Museum of Valencia, Spain I decided to venture out to another site. It is Friday March 9th. Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be scattered rain showers during the day and possible thunderstorms in the afternoon. Also to complicate the matters a little, I may have a friend coming over for a while. I am trying to plan all of this on the only full weekend I may have here in Valencia, Spain.

So, I take a deep breath, fire up google maps. I attach the portable battery pack to the LG G4 and I start walking towards the ancient Cathedral of Valencia. Why the battery pack? Google maps is a battery hog! Ensure you plan its usage accordingly.

The walk feels longer than I expected. there were a few twists and turns to navigate and in the end. There are many, many people on the streets. After taking one more left turn, I see this in the distance.

There are many people here. It’s almost a constant moving chaotic mass of people. I approach the doors of the cathedral and look inside. There are a half dozen young women behind the desk, taking money and handing out headphones. All of these fine ladies speak English. The cost to enter the ancient Cathedral of Valencia, Spain is 8 Euro.  I paid my fee and declined a headset. I took my hat off and stored it within the backpack and I started looking around. I didn’t know where to start taking photographs, it all looked amazing.

While at the Cathedral of Valencia, Spain I decided that I would only use the Canon T3i with the ROKNON wide angle lens. I had nothing but time, and from what many people have written about seeing this cathedral, it would take between thirty minutes to an hour to see most of the area. I did NOT opt in for climbing up to the bell tower to see the skyline and maybe become deaf as the bells ring on the hour within the bell tower.

Each exhibit has its own station number  which can be related back to a map, or a station on the headset. My goal today is to get the photographs up and then see if I am able to decipher the map and offer some comments on what each of these photographs show.

But, for now, I will simply add the photographs. these are a lot smaller than you think. Feel free to download them and look them over. All I ask is that you do not reuse these to your advantage. If you do, simply add this website www.missionincredible.org in the credits.

I do have more photographs, but I will only display 20 which is a nice round number. The visit to the ancient Cathedral of Valencia was truly an experience I will not forget. If you are going to Spain, most major cities will have a large Cathedral. I think you should go check it out.

I hope you enjoy these photographs of the ancient Cathedral of Valencia. If you dare climb the bell tower, do not tell your friends it will chime on the hour. It will be a neat joke to play on them, and add memories to your visit.
