This city neighborhood, which has been around for a thousand years, developed between Muslim and Christian walls. The Carmen Calzado convent, the church, and the nearby plaza give this famous neighborhood, which is located in the city's historic center, Ciutat Vella, its name. For all intents and purposes, Valencia's real historical center is there. The Serranos and Quart Towers presently stand as the city's most recognizable medieval remnants, despite the fact that the city was originally surrounded by the Muslim wall. Visitors enter a maze of winding cobblestone lanes that are home to several secrets when they pass through these gates. Roteros and Corona are two streets that originate in the former suburbs. The stunning Portal de la Valldigna, the magnificent frescoes of San Nicolás Church, the century-old Plaza del rbol, the modest Casa de los Gatos (House of Cats), as well as long-standing businesses boasting centuries of history, can all be found in the neighborhood's center. In addition to being a bohemian neighborhood with plenty of street art, Barrio del Carmen is also home to modern museums like the IVAM, the Carmen Center, and the Beneficencia Cultural Center. No matter what time of day it is, there is always life on the streets. Visit the renowned Mossén Sorell Market in the morning, which sells a variety of gourmet goods.
