Are you ready for a weekend of typical Valencian plans? If you still have nothing planned, get a look at the blog of our Spanish school El Rinc√≥n del Tandem ūüėČ

As every Friday, we have selected some Valencian plans to help our students of the Spanish course fully enjoy this lively July in Valencia.

Below you will find very diverse and, at the same time, ‚Äúvery Valencian‚ÄĚ plans that will make you have fun and appreciate Valencian peculiarities.

Let’s start!

Guided Visits by Menta

Saturday, 13th and Sunday, 14th
Iglesia de San Nicol√°s, Calle Caballeros 35
Museo de la Seda, Calle del Hospital 7
Fee: 7 euros

When you think you’ve seen everything in Valencia, you always find out that there are hidden treasures to be discovered…

If you want to deeply know two essential monuments of Valencian arts and society, we encourage you to join the guided visits.

To begin with, you can visit the Church of San Nicol√°s, also known as “The Valencian Sistine Chapel”, contemplating its incredible frescoes and its architectural beauties.

Then, you will go to the Silk Museum (Museo de la Seda), to know everything about silk in Valencia: its origins, evolution of the fabric, work tools, guilds, etc. You will learn the fundamental role of silk in the commercial and economic development of the city.

The two visits will be guided by professionals of the Menta project, who will accompany you to explain everything in detail and to answer your questions.

You can book your visit by writing to info@mentavalencia.com or by calling 963 584 982. We invite you to consult the schedule on the official website of the organization.

Are you eager to take a journey in the past? Well, take advantage of this great opportunity ūüėČ

Exposici√≥n “European Puzzle”

From the 10th of July to the 8th of September
Centre del Carmen (CCCC), Calle del Museo 2.
Free entrance

We continue traveling in time and space with this photographic exhibition at the Center del Carmen.

Through the black and white look of the photographer Jean-Christophe Béchet, we will travel throughout Europe, meeting squares, corners and poetic images of profound social meaning.

The exhibition of the work of the French photographer takes place in the framework of the Cultural Season of the French Institute of Spain 2019, under the slogan “We Europe”.

In fact, the exhibition will invite us to reflect on borders and identities, filling us with a sense of solidarity and unity.

Therefore, among meals, rest and fun, we invite you to make some time to know this work that will make us travel cross borders.

Moving through poetry, documentary and social commitment…

Like almost every weekend, the Tapineria Market proposes a new plan that will leave us relaxed and ready to start the week with renewed energies ūüôā

In one of the spaces of reference of the Valencian lively social life, we will be able taste typical products, accompanied by live music and arts, and DJs sessions.

Also, we enjoy more when we help out for a good cause.

In fact, the event participates in the Magic Napkins initiative promoted by the Asindown Association, which, under the slogan “I do not change you for anyone” promotes the labour inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

Don’t you think there are enough reasons to participate? So, come on, join the event!
