Valencia has been and continues to be a city of artists. In this visit we would like to show you closely the hands and the great professionals behind our ceramics, our ninots fallers or our sculptures of porcelain. So we will visit three different museums.
We will start the day with the National Ceramics Museum located in of the Palace of the Marquis of Dos Aguas. Here we will not only talk about ceramics but also about the Valencian family of merchants and the incredible palace where several generations lived for centuries. It is one of the best examples of the baroque style in Valencia.
The second stop will be the Fallas Museum, dedicated to the Fallas, the most famous festival in Valencia and declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2016. Inside we will find the ninots indultats since 1934. They are the figures made for the Fallas which have been saved from the flames by a popular vote.
Finally we will visit the Lladró factory, known as the Porcelain City. It is a famous Valencian brand founded by 3 Valencian brothers: Juan, José and Vicente Lladró. Who was going to tell them that half a century after their porcelain figures would be sold in New York, Tokyo or Beverly Hills?
