Discover the historical legacy left in Valencia by the most important industry between the 14th and 18th centuries: the silk trade.
First we will visit the interior of the Silk Exchange (Lonja de la Seda), a Gothic building that has been a World Heritage Site since 1996. We will also see the recently restored Higher Art College of Silk, which is now the Silk Museum. A tour around the Velluters district, where most of the Valencian silk workers guilds were based. A Valencian costume shop "Albaes" will complete this tour discovering the Valencian silk route.
