House of the America’s Cup

General Comments (0)

downloadThe striking cubic building housing the Casa de la America’s Cup (House of the America’s Cup) shows just how proud Valencia is to be involved in this famous sailing event. You will spot it easily, its layered balconies making clear it’s a great vantage point and well as a visual talking point.

Inside the museum at the Marina Real Juan Carlos I, the view is just as cutting edge. Five glass display cases tell the story of the world’s oldest trophy in video, while headsets give an audio explanation in Spanish and English, taking you from 1851 to 2013.

You can find the House of the America’s Cup, also known locally as Veles e Vents, at the inner harbour of the Marina Real Juan Carlos I, between the Edificio del Reloj and Tinglado 2.

The House of the America’s Cup is open Monday-Thursday from 11am-2pm, 4pm-8pm and Friday-Sunday from 11am-3pm and 4pm-8pm. Admission is free.
