Neighborhood: Old Quarter
Overview

This old building houses two museums, the Museo Etnológico and the Museo de Prehistoria. The former has an exhibition that displays and describes the traditional rural customs and lifestyles of the region. The latter shows the most significant archaeological finds discovered in Valencia, including an important collection of Iberian art. The building itself dates from 1877 and has been totally renovated in order to provide a home for the two museums. The interior still feels a little like a 19th century orphanage, not surprisingly as it was previously a poorhouse (1841) and before that, the Corona monastery (1538) stood here. Admission is free.
