Exhibit “The Port of Valencia in the Golden Age”

The Port Authority of Valencia invites you to learn about the economic, cultural and social impact it had on the city in the 15th century

2. Vilanova del Grau de la Mar, explaining this town's role in supplying and defending the port.
3. The cultural splendor of the city, dedicated to showing the main trading activity, the cultural exchange promoted by maritime communication and commerce, and the printing press as an influential piece in the dissemination of culture.
4. The past and present of the city of Valencia, showing a current map with places and buildings from the Golden Age and how they are used today.
