Centre del Carme

Centre del Carmen is the result of several emblematic buildings joined together, with an extraordinary historical weight, towards their new reality as one the main hub of culture in town.

Founded in 1281 in honor of Mare de Déu del Carme, the Royal Monastery is a monumental complex that includes refectories, chapter houses, a Gothic cloister, a renaissance cloister, a church with altarpiece…

Definitely a unique context for creativity to flow in the atmosphere. Since the 19th century, society has understood that message. It turned into Museu i Reial Acadèmia de Belles Arts, where some of the best Valencian artists studied, such as Sorolla, Pinazo and Benlliure.

Converted in recent years into a center for contemporary culture, part of the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana, it has hosted some of the liveliest exhibitions. Exhibitions such as ‘Prohibit fixar cartells’ are a reflection of the design momentum of the city.

If only the walls could talk!
