Hangman's Route - Theatrical route full of mystery

Hangman's Route - Theatrical route full of mystery

Valencia is a vibrant city full of life. It was also in the Middle Ages. Nobles, merchants of the Silk Road, serranos from the outskirts strolled through its streets ... A cultural amalgam that gave our urban fabric a variety of colors. But Valencia also had a dark part linked to executions and practices closely related to the inquisition and torture. The death penalty was in force in the city until the mid-19th century. The large squares we are walking through today: Almoina, the Mercado ... have witnessed for the longest periods the cruelest torture and the bloodiest deaths. Do you dare to know all these stories with us? On the tour we will know the story of an illustrious doctor who was tried and executed by the Holy Inquisition for unconventional practices. Innocent or guilty? Participants in the Hangman's Route may make their own personal judgment.

Guided Walking Tour of Modernist Valencia

In Valencia in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, a great transformative process was experienced. The great avenues that emerge in the wake of the demolition of the Christian walls of 1865 will be dotted with buildings in which modernism will coexist with Neomudéjar, Neomedieval, Neo-Byzantine or Neo-Baroque architectures, also incorporating decorative elements linked to local tradition: floral motifs, fruit, marine, or clothing and own iconography. The greatest exponent will be the Regional Exhibition of 1909.
