Easier to get into, better to look at, more interesting murals, paintings, statues than the actual cathedral. During Fallas it takes centre stage with over 120,000 falleros filing past to offer flowers (carnations) to build the wonderful creation that is the Mare de Dieu de los Desamparados
We popped in here while a service was being held so we didn't stay long, but took a quick look. It was certainly worth it. It is very ornate and the painted ceiling is very beautiful. Much more interesting than the cathedral.
