  • Name Benlliure is named Blasco Ibáñez, friends forever, its escultures adorned the House of Blasco, even the sketch that would be its Pantheon, never performed in his home, as a House of an artist to win in their land and out of ella.en America retain its escultures in famous museums, the visit is pero reasonable payment and retired, less , I like much see the Museum that saw his works in other cities and it is the first time that I visit this.

  • The Casa-Museo José Benlliure, is the family home of the famous Valencian painter José Benlliure. This beautiful House is located in the Centre of town, very close to the Serrano towers. It is a large, multi-story home and visit some of the important rooms such as clearance and room visits the painter, a dining room and your master bedroom, with furniture of the time. Also visit his Studio, richly decorated, with plenty of varied objects, brought many of his trips, Europe, as well as pictures. In this museum is shows a wide collection of painting of José Benlliure and his son José Benlliure Ortiz, besides pictures and sculptures of others significant artists of the time as his friend Joaquín Sorolla. In addition the House has a beautiful garden, typical Valencian, with variety of vegetation, Palm trees, pine trees, orange trees, etc... a real haven of tranquillity and peace. Important, before you start the tour and visit to the Museum, I recommend the explanatory video on the life and work of the artist, which is displayed in an area of the House which is situated after crossing the garden. Very interesting, and also can be comfortably seated in one of the banks that have settled there. The entrance to this interesting Museum is 2 euros. Sundays and bank holidays the entrance is free. There are elevators and bathrooms. Photos without flash can be. Very well be visit in an hour. A Museum of interest mostly for lovers to art and painting. A museum that was great to us.

  • Entering the premises of the House of José Benlliure is known a time. A few meters from the gates of Serrano and plaza del Carmen this cottage is located with its nice garden, his Studio, his collection of Antiquities and, above all, his house, decorated also with his work and some other Sorolla. The building consists of four floors, being visited three of them. The musealisation of the housing is located on the ground floor, while the other two are exhibition halls of the beautiful works of the painter, also found a sculpture of his brother.
