With the alternative tour STREET ART VALENCIA, you will discover “El Carmen“, a quarter where tradition and trendy shops mixed up in the most varied neighborhood in the city. Its history has its roots in the very conquest of Valencia in the thirteenth century. “El Carmen”, full of inspiring nooks and labyrinthine alleys inherited from Islamic urbanism, is a monumental and museum district, but also of nightlife, urban art and vanguard.

Street art will be our inseparable companion: we will meet the main artists (Valencian and international ones) who paint in El Carmen, and their work will help us to understand the district with more personality of Valencia.
