The route "Valencia in the time 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 official 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 traces 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.
