Here at our school in Valencia, we love planning activities with our students outside the school. We believe our classroom is one of the best places for learning Spanish, but we are also sure that the practice we get by being together in activities in the real world doesn’t match any other way of practice.
With that in mind, we organized a tour to one of the MUSTS of the city, if you are interested in art: Valencia’s Fine Arts Museum. We visited the second largest art gallery in Spain with works from the 15th. to the 19th. centuries, where stand out the rooms dedicated to Sorolla and the one dedicated to Francisco de Goya.
The rooms of Gothic work are impressive! And very representative of the Valencian school; they include works of art made by important painters and sculptors such as Pinazo and Benlliure. The museum stands out for the artistic pictorial collection of this style in Spain.
If you visit the museum, don’t miss Patio del Embajador Vich and the unpublished work of Velázquez. Our students were amazed by these pieces of art and couldn’t stop staring at them!
We’re definitely coming back, there are so many things to appreciate, that one time was not enough for us!
