2. Valencia Silk Museum
Built in the middle of the 15th century, it’s the best place to discover the art of silk, thanks to the extensive heritage conserved with two unique working looms, a silkworm nursery and the Salón de la Fama with original 18th century ceramic paving.

Centre for craftspeople from the Comunitat Valenciana with temporary exhibitions and a Valencia handcraft shop.
