Plaza de l'Almoina, Valencia
Plaza de l'Almoina (or Alms Plaza) is a small square situated
next to the Cathedral that has gained great importance for
hiding some of the greatest archaeological treasures in the city.
Excavation in Plaza de l'Almoina started in 1985. Four years
later the former building called San Vicente's Jail was
demolished, and to everyone's surprise they discovered important
remnants of past civilizations: What appeared to be part of a
Roman road, a Visigothic funeral chapel, Arab baths, and more.
These are just some of the important finds in this plaza. In the
archeological site on San Vincente Martir, you will find an
audiovisual explanation of this plaza and its archaeological
treasures in three alternating languages: Spanish, Valencian or
English. This is combined with free visits to the site.
