    A BEACH VIEW

    Valencia Cathedral

    Built at the city’s highest point, Valencia Cathedral Built at the city’s highest point, Valencia Cathedral – or to give it its full name, the Santa Iglesia Catedral Basilica Metropolitana de Santa María – does not quite dominate the skyline as much as its grand title might suggest.

    ARTICLE ON CABANYAL
