Every Thursday - Visit Valencia Cathedral on any Thursday at 12:00 (except public holidays) to witness a centuries-old tradition which takes place at the Door of the Apostles: the Water Court. Designated as an intangible cultural heritage asset in 2009, the Water Court of the plain of Valencia is the oldest law court in Europe.
