Basilica de la Virgen de los Desamparados

Basilica of Our Lady of the Forsaken

Plaza de la Virgen, Valencia 46003.

Itinerary: El Mercat

Category: main attraction sightseeing

This temple, built upon the ruins of the Roman forum and dedicated to the patron of the city, is linked to the cathedral by way of a Renaissance arch. Everything inside revolves around the statue of the Virgin, a Gothic sculpture with the head leaning slightly to one side, and covered with a robe and jewels. In the XVIII century, the two innocents who are at her feet were added, and the whole thing is now set upon a mechanical device which allows the statue to revolve. The central nave is covered by an oval-shaped dome, with frescos painted by Antonio Palomino.

Useful Information
