In the Palace of the Marquis de Dos Aguas, one of the most striking historic buildings in the centre of Valencia and probably one of the most photographed. It is considered one of the great examples of Spanish Baroque due to its peculiar façade with its abundance of decoration. Especially arresting are its alabaster sculptures.

The National Museum of Ceramics houses an extensive collection of Spanish and foreign ceramics, mainly honouring the Valencian ceramics industry. A heterogeneous museum offering great historical richness, with pieces of all types from the 8th century to the present day. We find medieval pieces from Paterna and Manises, as well as the classic Valencian medieval tiles known as ‘socarrats’ or decorated ceiling tiles. Also of note is the collection of pieces that Picasso dedicated to the museum when it was inaugurated.
