The artistic and cultural heritage of the Region of Valencia is one of the most valuable in our country and it reflects the rich legacy of all the peoples who inhabited this shore of the Mediterranean Sea.
Even the smallest town or village in the Region of Valencia has a museum, whatever the theme. Even some inland towns such as Guadalest, that has become a museum reference for the number of museums per square meter in its streets. From contemporary art to ethnographic museums, to the houses-museum of important Valencian natives such as Vicente Blasco Ibáñez or the writer Miguel Hernández, more than 300 centres receive the visitor any day of the year. Museums open to all audiences with interesting proposals that will make us travel along the Silk Road, discover the immense legacy of the Borgia family or go out in search of the Holy Grail, among many other topics.
Art and crafts
The Planetarium of Grao de Castellón was a pioneer in its day within the Region of València. Due to its characteristics, it has established itself as a benchmark in the dissemination of scientific culture.
Sea, mountains, and sun — a privileged environment on the shores of the Mediterranean sea for the enjoyment of the traveller and the tourist. To the south of the province of Alicante, already almost in the border with Murcia, is Pilar de la Horadada – a town belonging to the Vega Baja region that boasts more than 4 kilometres of beaches.
The Valencian Institute of Modern Art, better known by its acronym IVAM, is an institution created by the Generalitat Valenciana at the end of 1986, whose primary purpose is to disseminate and promote modern art in the city of Valéncia.
