The Valencia’s historic center is one of the largest in Europe. The Catedral was settled on top of a roman temple which time after became a mosque. Its origin is from the XIII century. Though it doesn’t belong to a unitary or dominant style, its essence varies from the romanic design to the baroque, just as its three doors show: principal door or “Iron doorway” (baroque), “Apostles doorway” (gothic) and “Palau doorway”.
