Hi! My name is Lucia. I am a languages teacher with a degree in Social Sciences and Geography. I was born in Valencia and I'm passionate about local culture and traditions. I have lived in amazing countries such as Ethiopia, Myanmar and China as well as England and Ireland, so I know very well what makes a place special. I am great communicator and I speak English at native speaker level. My city has lots of exciting things to do, amazing places to visit and secrets and curiosities I can help you discover. My experience as tour guide started in Dublin, Ireland. I want to make you feel at home in my hometown and share with you an unforgettable time.
The route “Valencia, capital of the Republic” puts in context the importance of Valencia in the 1930s, those of the Second Spanish Republic. In the middle of the Civil War, the Government of Largo Caballero decided to move to Valencia, which would be the capital of the Republic for a year.
From the hand of an expert local guide, you will learn more about the transformations that took place in the appearance of the city, in its streets and in the most emblematic places, those that changed the course of history.
You will discover the trace of "blasquismo", since the Valencian writer and politician Vicente Blasco Ibáñez was a key figure in the development of the republican spirit of the city. You will visit various medieval palaces converted into ministries such as the Benicarló Palace or the Marqués de Campo Palace. And you will visit one of the many bomb shelters that were built in Valencia to mitigate the impact of the 400 bombings that the city suffered during the civil war.
