The city has been positioning itself for years as an international capital of urban art, recognised for its tenacity, beauty, diversity and expressive capacity. Its streets have come to constitute a genuine open-air museum, thanks to the magnificent works by many artists gracing walls and urban spaces.

Very old quarters in the historic center, such as El Carmen, El Pilar or La Xerea, have seen their centuries-old walls brought back to life thanks to colourful murals, as the residents have embraced these creations as a way to revamp the city's streets and squares.

This tour immerses us in the local creative diversity, thanks to an expert guide, starting with an historical overview. We will learn the rules and language of urban art and discover how the capital itself influences artists and their works. Every city has its idiosyncrasies, shaping a unique style that, in the case of Valencia, has seduced the art world for decades.

This guided walk focuses on the streets of El Carmen, including interventions such as Luis Montolio’s giant-format photographs or the works of Italy’s Ericailcane with its dose of social and political criticism.

The unmistakable styles of various Valencian artists already form part of the cityscape: Escif, Barbi, DEIH, La Nena Wapa Wapa and many more. The famous Casa de los Gatos (House of the Cats), one of the most emblematic elements of this quarter, is of course part of our tour.

This “Street and urban art” tour is a cosmopolitan, modern and different visit, one full of graffiti, stencils, wheatpaste, stickers, murals and all kinds of creative transformations of our urban environment. Don’t miss out on the chance to enjoy this guided walk and live a unique censorship-free experience in Valencia.
