I am an Artist and this is my home, where you will share your stay with original artworks in the perfect location. Between The River Park, Russafa Neighbourhood and the Old roman-medieval city, my street is yet calmed except for friday and saturday night, cheered up for the extreme joy of people coming to the disco. (Not recommendable)
While you are here, I move to any of the available Arts Residencies or just invade my best friend's flat. If you tell me in advance, I may give you the two hours guided tour trhough the old city, since I have been a professor for the Fine Arts Faculty in the Valencia Politechnique University and a docummentary filmmaker, so I am a lover of the history of Arts, Architechture and politics of this city. Please fell free to ask me to send you the link to any of my previous videos of tours.
My neighbourhood is the best in Valencia Centre, offering both: the fanciest restaurants in town and all the facilities you may need for your shopping or repairing. The oldest cinema in the city, 3 hairdressers, a small supermarket, an antiques shop, the Harley Davidson selling point, two sandwich bars, a pharmacy, a professional sound shop, a stationary and a production company complete the business in my street.
Just around the corner, in my triangled shaped block, you'll find the main square of our neighbourhood, where you may sit by the sun to enjoy the best pizzas in town made by GianLuca's place PEPPERONCINO. For a formal encounter, the elegant GOYA GALLERY, crossing the street, or at COLONIALES (next block)where you may have a superb dinner in a more relaxed ambiance , or let yourself go with tapas in LA BARRA.
Shopping for trendy is just everywhere, I reccomend GARAGE FACTORY, just around the corner in Burriana Street, or EL MUNDO AL REVÉS, with a wide selection for casual clothing in both shops.
May I perhaps suggest you to take a pleasant walk by the River Park, don't worry about drawning, there's no water anymore, but a wide choice of different paths through gardens and trees. If you're into music, this is your place, only four blocks away you'll be at the JULY JAZZ FESTIVAL in the Music Palace "PALAU DE LA MUSICA", and in autumn the OPERA SEASON in a 15 min. walk.
If you're more into Arts and Culture, the Galleries start their season in september/october as well as the hugh variety of any kind of Art Events such as performances, installations, interactions, Concerts, Conference in the big Institutions: LA NAU (Universitat de Valéncia) LAS NAVES, Museum CENTRO DEL CARMEN, LA ALMOINA, EL ALMUDIN, LAS ATARAZANAS, MUSEO DE BELLAS ARTES, IVAM, MUVIM and other more than 20 spaces where you may be part of the sound creators, urban artists or poets in actions. RUZAFA is just crossing the Avenue Reino de Valencia, with more than 100 options for your leissure time: eating, listening, dancing, watching and being part of the action!
