Portal de la Valldigna
Tucked away down a quiet backstreet in El Carmen, this pretty sight is missed by the vast majority of tourists and even some Valencians are unaware of it. The Portal de la Valldigna (Valldigna Gate) was built in 1400 as a gateway separating the Christian and Moorish areas of the city. Like other ruined parts of the Old City, the gateway was almost demolished last century, but eventually given protected status and restored in the 1940s. It was built next to the ancient Arab wall, a part of which still survives (though in dire need of restoration) between apartment buildings on the neighbouring Carrer de les Salines.
