Church (Iglesia) and Tower (Torre) of Santa Catalina - Valencia, Spain

They call El Micalet and Sta Catalina "husband and wife". Perhaps because both are very close to each other (both on Plaza de la Reina) and in some ways similar, yet the Baroque tower of Sta Catalina church holds a more light-hearted and elegant ornament, and a more fuid shape, in contrast to the sturdy and solemn Micalet. Sta Catalina is one of Valencia's landmarks, one of the most beautiful buildings in Carmen and an unforgettable sight in the sunny Spanish afternoon. The church interior is also worth visiting, the small, genuine Old Gothic space with coloured windows.

History: the church of Sta Catalina is one of the oldest in the city, dating from 14th century, still very visible in the genuinely Gothic interior. The tower was added in 18th century.
