Just two steps away from the Plaza Porta de la Mar and Paseo de la Ciudadela, it is in the city’s great tourist area, five minutes away from the Cathedral and the Church of Nuestra Señora de Los Desamparados (Our Lady of the Forsaken), also right next door to the Serranos towers and the famous “Miguelete”.  We want to make you feel truly special for the beginning of your Travel Experience in Valencia!

Valencia has become one of the most significant destinations for urban art in Spain. During this three hour tour, you will not find a better way to appreciate Valencia’s street art. Strolling through the Old City streets and exploring the alternative district of El Carmen is like an exciting treasure hunt - The murals of all shapes, sizes, and styles have sprung up to transform uninspiring buildings into attractive and challenging areas, often inviting a dialogue or provoking a smile to the ones admiring them.
