Art Museum Museum
Admire paintings, drawings, sculptures, and historic artifacts at Museo de Bellas Artes de Valencia. The museum houses some 2,000 works, most dating from the 14th to 17th centuries and mainly religious in theme. Marvel at masterpieces such as El Greco’s "St. John the Baptist," Goya’s "Playing Children," and a self-portrait by Diego Velázquez. The gallery is not only filled with works of beauty, but is set in an architecturally stunning building: St. Pius V Palace. Take time to appreciate the striking Baroque building, which was built in the 17th and 18th centuries. Pick up some literature on your favorite artist at the bookshop. Grab a snack at the on-site cafe, or head next door to the royal gardens and enjoy a picnic.

  • Lots of generic glitzy religious art, but the Sorolla room is excellent. Good cafe as well.
  • The blue cloister is one of the most beautiful things in the beautiful city of Valencia.
  • This is a very nice museum and is free of cost. It is big and holds the history of Valencia and has a special exhibition of famous historic Valencian artists sometimes.
  • Beautiful and interesting museum. Make sure to visit it. It is definately worthwile.
  • Friendly staff, not a lot to see but its very interesting. Worth the visit. P.S. They keep it very cold inside to protect the art so bring a light jacket.

Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.
