TOURISTIC AREA: Historical center
The Bancaja Foundation is a private, non-profit institution offering a multitude of cultural activities. It is housed in a 12,000 m2 building, in the heart of the capital. In terms of the arts, it stands out for its exhibitions, workshops, conferences and awards, in addition to giving support to the Valencian language and culture. Moving beyond its role as a museum, the foundation aims to combine these elements to support the initiatives of social organisations.
The centre contains a wealth of artistic heritage, including the restoration of the graphic works of Picasso and the Valencian painter Joaquín Sorolla. The temporary exhibitions are also worth a visit, and to date have featured a wide variety of artists, including Ignacio Pinazo, Equipo Crónica and Francis Bacon. It has also, on occasion, organised joint concerts with Berklee College. All activities and guided tours are free of charge, though reservations must be made for Fridays and Saturdays.
