Valencia – Eixample – Modernista architecture in El Pla del Real

Posted in El Pla del Real, Spain, Valencia, Valenciana Comunidad with tags , on March 3, 2019 by gannet39

El Pla del Real is the district due east of the old town, on the other side of the old Turia river bed.

The Palau de l’Exposició de València housed the Valencian Regional Exhibition of 1909. It was designed by the architect Francesc Mora i Berenguer in a Neogothic modernista style.

On the next block is the Art Nouveau Edificio de la Industria Lanera, now a Westin Hotel.

Just a few blocks away is the Museu de Belles Arts de València (technically in La Saidia). While I’m not a fan of the building, I do quite like this cornerstone.
