House of San Vicente Ferrer Tours and Activities
Cities and regions across Spain have their own patron saints. In Valencia, one of those saints is none other than San Vicente Ferrer, who was born in this very city in the 14th century. It should come as no surprise, then, that his former “home” is a sacred spot for Catholics, and especially for Valencians.
It’s not exactly his home, though, but rather the site of his home. Instead, what you will find in this place is a chapel, much of which was actually constructed in the 20th century. Apart from the intimately sized interior, the tiny church is also home to the hallowed water well after which its street is named, as well as a colorful entryway decorated with tiles depicting the saint’s different miracles.
Given that this is a patron saint of both the city of Valencia and the larger community, this site is considered a holy destination for many locals, and even more so during the San Vincente Ferrer Festivity. That’s when a handful of important events take place, including a flower offering, a procession through town, and the enactment of different miracles at 14 altars throughout the city.
