Tour description

At the indicated time, we will meet next to the Lonja de la Seda to begin a free tour that will take us to know the darker side of Valencia .

As we cross the central Plaza del Mercado , we will be surprised to discover the bloody scenes that starred in this area, the former seat of the city's gallows. Here we will learn about the legend of Morro de Baques , a unique character who served as an executioner and who applied the most brutal punishments to the condemned.

We will go back to the 15th century to discover the stories of lust and prostitution of the past of the city.

Strolling through the center of Valencia, we will discover what relationship the Cathedral, the Miguelete and the Plaza de la Virgen have with the most atrocious crimes and epidemics that hit the city. We will know the places where the ghosts of the past are still alive and that have been documented cases of investigation.

After two hours knowing the darkest legends of Valencia , we will finish the tour.

This was really terrible. We had to wait for 20 minutes and after that we decided to leave. We never heard anything from the guru and she didn’t show up. Really disappointing and unrespectful. Can’t recommend this tour or guru!!
