From Castellón to Alicante, passing through València, the modernist art of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries left many treasures around promenades and squares. Some facades of houses, as well as public buildings, are the leading exponents and allow us to establish a route that, in the north, is manifested in the Castellón houses dels Quatre Cantons or dels Caragols, among many other samples. If we move to the city of València, the home of Punt de Ganxo and the markets of Colón and Central, together with the station of the North, illustrate the importance that the movement had for the Valencian bourgeoisie of that time. At this point, it is essential to mention also the city of Carcaixent and the Fira Modernista that is held there every year.
This art also came to the province of Alicante, with Alcoy as the maximum exponent. Vicente Pascual and Timoteo Briet captured the vividness of modernism in the Conservatory of Music and in the Industrial Circle, respectively. Or in Novelda´s town, where we find some of the best examples of the Modernist style in the Valencian areas: The Casa-Museo Modernista, the Centro Cultural Gómez- Tortosa and the Saint Mary Magdalene’ s sanctuary.
