Tetuan is one of those places in Valencia that just happen to be a cluster
of things to see with nothing in common between those.
Convento de Santo Domingo is a large, atmospheric
monasterial complex that will remind you of the Imperial days. A mixture
of Gothic, Renaissance and Neo-classical, it dates from as far back as
Right opposite it is Palacio de Cervello. Although
not particularly anything special visually, it is a very important building
in Valencia - used as a royal residence during the 19th century, Those
rooms have seen hugely historic events and are currently housing a museum
on the topic (also lets you see the refurbished interior).
A few meters down is the small park of Glorieta
where you can soak up the Spanish afternoon among some very curious trees.
As you walk towards there, note the high bank building on your right,
it is unbelievable.
On the other side of the Glorieta you can see the Puerta
del Mar - a kind of Valencian Triumphal Arch, with the full symbolism
and insignia of Valencia. These gates used to be part of the city walls,
much like Torres de Serranos or Quart,
but they were moved, stone-by-stone.
The roundabout of Puerta del Mar also holds the Palacio de Justicia (Court),
a neo-classical building of 18th century worth a quick look.
Also within a few metres of Plaza Tetuan in a slightly different direction
is the Chapel of San Vicente Ferrer.
