TOURIST INTEREST

The cross marking the limit of the municipality, dating from 15th century, divides the municipalities of Valencia and Mislata. Mention may also be made of the beautiful Town Hall, located in the old town. A relaxing stroll through the large park located next to the sports centre is highly recommended. The Church of Our Lady of the Angels is the oldest in Mislata (18th century) and displays a succession of styles and extreme simplicity, especially on its façade. It was constructed on one level and has a Latin cross layout and a barrel vault. In addition to the Church of Our Lady of the Angels, there are two more churches in Mislata: the Church of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Church of Saint Michael of Soternes. The Convent of Our Lady at the Foot of the Cross dates from the mid-20th century and is located near to the Church of the Angels. It is contemporary in style and has a single nave.
