The artistic and cultural heritage of the Region of Valencia is one of the most valuable in our country and it reflects the rich legacy of all the peoples who inhabited this shore of the Mediterranean Sea.
Even the smallest town or village in the Region of Valencia has a museum, whatever the theme. Even some inland towns such as Guadalest, that has become a museum reference for the number of museums per square meter in its streets. From contemporary art to ethnographic museums, to the houses-museum of important Valencian natives such as Vicente Blasco Ibáñez or the writer Miguel Hernández, more than 300 centres receive the visitor any day of the year. Museums open to all audiences with interesting proposals that will make us travel along the Silk Road, discover the immense legacy of the Borgia family or go out in search of the Holy Grail, among many other topics.

In the 8th century, the Arabs baptised it as al-Bayda, which means "the White," for the whitish clays of the valley. This region of the interior of Valéncia has more than thirty villages surrounded by mountains, springs, and ravines. But if this region is known for a reason, it is for its textile industry – a long tradition that takes us to the early twentieth century.
The industrial decadence of the València of the early twentieth century has a new reference in the form of a museum. A large emerging art gallery was born at the junction between Burjassot Avenue and Reus Street, in the Marxalenes neighbourhood. The old Bombas Gens factory now houses a new space dedicated to contemporary art and photography lovers.
