When you leave the United States and enter a city with as rich a history as Valencia you come to realize how young the US is compared to Europe in general. Walking in churches and intuitions that are far older then your home is one part awe inspiring and one part confusing. The American consciousness is comparatively much younger than most historically significant things in Valencia as such when we try to harken back to anything that can remotely relate it is still far too young.
When your eyes set upon the beauty of the art work and structure both inside and out of these old buildings you can be so overwhelmed that it can take you breath away. This happens to me multiple times since we have been here and toured important landmarks of the city.
The beauty of walking through the same halls thousands and thousands of other people over the course of centuries have walked through is so amazing. You are just one of thousands more people that will soon pass the same walk ways and experience the same things you had and wonder about the significant of the frescoes painstakingly painted centuries before. That is such an amazing concept.
