Overview

Graffiti tour and Carmen Quarter  - 3 hours -
The graffiti tour is something new and interesting, moreover in the Carmen neighborhood there are many pieces by well-known urban artists. This has always been a bohemian quarter where most of the gills in Valencia were located.
Urban art has been transformed over time, going from being considered "vandalism" or clandestine, to being one of the most appreciated forms of modern art. It is a popular art and in many cases ephemeral.
We will see the so called now "the Street of the colours" the photograph of a Kiss. This is well-known as street Moret, where several pieces of street art are represented on a wall 60 meter long, -the mystery of a Kiss- like for instance you will see the tiny Haus of the Cats, you will also see where artists such as Escif, la Nena, Julieta, Deih, Xelón, David de Limón, have left a trace of their talent.
Apart from seeing graffiti you also will see buildings or places of interest, like the remains of the Arab wall.

What To Expect

Torres de Serranos
We can start by the Serranos Gate at 10:00
That gate is one of the twelve that formed part of the ancient city wall (christian wall). It was built at the end of the XIV century. Its name is probably due to its location in the northest of the city centre, making it the entry point for the royal road that connected Valencia with the region of "els Serrans".

Visite culturellement enrichissante

Angela Mari m'a donné goût au street art en général. Elle m'a ouvert la curiosité. La visite a été très détaillée et riche en anecdotes. D'autre part, Angela nous a transmis avec passion la formidable histoire de cette ville et en particulier de ce quartier. J'ai passé un moment très agréable et je recommande cette visite et en particulier cette guide. J'ai terminé le tour avec le sentiment d'avoir enrichi ma culture et avec l'envie d'en savoir encore plus sur le street art et sur la ville de Valence qui est une ville magnifique.
Visite passionnante

Angela Mari a été une guide formidable pour nous. Elle nous a donné des explications passionnantes sur le street art du quartier du Carmen. Elle est très patiente et généreuse dans ses commentaires très détaillés. Elle connaît personnellement les artistes de rue, et nous partage des anecdotes très intéressantes. Grâce à elle nous ne regardons plus la rue de la même façon ! Merci pour tout !!!

Ángela parece saber todo lo que hay que saber sobre el barrio del Carmen. El Tour se lleva por el animado barrio y se acerca un poco más a la historia y la arquitectura de la ciudad.
Uno sguardo completo ed interessante sulla street-art valenciana

Àngela ci ha fatto conoscere i quartieri della Seta e del Carmen attraverso un approfondito e dettagliato percorso dedicato alla street-art. Uno sguardo davvero interessante che ci ha permesso di apprendere storia ed evoluzione dell'arte urbana valenciana e di riconoscere, confrontare e criticare i maggiori artisti della scena contemporanea.

Consiglio assolutamente questa visita a tutti gli amanti dell'arte contemporanea ed in particolare a chi voglia comprendere, attraverso l'arte, i movimenti e le dinamiche sociali della città.

Saludos de Pablo y familia.
