Being part of the Old Town, El Carmen is also close to other famous neighbourhoods in the district, namely La Seu and El Mercat. Some of the most well-known sites in Valencia are found here.
For example, the Central Market and the Lonja de la Seda are right in front of each other in El Mercatneighbourhood.
In Barrio de la Seu, you will find Plaza de la Virgen and the Cathedral of Valencia, the city’s most important religious building (it is home to the Holy Chalice), with its bell tower Miguelete.
The lesser-known El Pilar neighbourhood also borders with El Carmen in its southwestern section. There, you will find the Col·legi de l’Art Major de la Seda, a museum devoted to silk and silk production.
