Overview

In the former palace of the Marquis de Campo, an interesting 19th century building in itself, is where we can find the Museo de la Ciudad (City Museum). There are several collections. The most important is the permanent archaeological collection which contains artefacts dating from the city's foundation and the Roman, Visigoth, Muslim and Christian eras. The visitor will also find valuable documents from the era of the conquest of Valencia by King Jaume I. The collection of scale models is another particularly outstanding one, especially that of the Valencia Royal Palace, now disappeared. The museum also houses the collection of paintings belonging to Valencia's Ayuntamiento (City Hall), which is complemented by temporary exhibits featuring local Valencian artists. Admission: free
