3. Museo Fallero
Fallas is a traditional, huge celebration in Valencia. It’s one of the biggest street festivals in Europe and it’s all about the incredible statues.
If joining the fiesta isn’t enough or if you just wanna know a little more about this unique tradition, I highly recommend visiting Museu Fallero. You’ll find all the winning statues from the past years and learn how they’re built. So interesting!

4. Museo de la Seda
Silk, silk, silk! I love it, it’s definitely something special. Valencia agrees because it has a special silk museum. Museo de la Seda is located in the former Higher Art college of Silk, which dates back to the 15th century. Find out how this special fabric came to Valencia and how important this trade was for more than three centuries.

Of course, there are many more museums to visit in Valencia, so we’ve created a Google Maps list with a couple more, interesting galleries.

Oh and pssst, ever heard of the phrase “the earth without art is just…. eh”? We totally agree on that. Valencia is a piece of art itself, but we’re happy that there’s such a rich culture of creativity.

Un abrazo,
