About the Tour

Would you like to know Alcoy?

Come with me to visit this such a particular city forged between mountains and rivers. Through this visit you will be able to discover a city that has been able to adapt to the times and especially to its complicated orography.
We will travel back in time from practically its foundation in the time of King Jaume I to the present day, going through the industrial era in particular so that you can discover why Alcoy is part of the European Route of Modernism.

On the tour we will visit the following points:
(Do not stay alone with this, it is a small summary, we will see much more...)

  • Spain Square. Center of Alcoyan life since the 18th century. I warn you it hides many surprises.
  • San Nicolas Street. It is one of the most important streets in the city center.
  • Church of Sant Mauro and Sant Francesc. Temple finished rebuilding in the 50s.
  • IVAM (Old Monte Piedad-Savings Bank). Modernist building, current headquarters of the Valencian Institute of Modern Art. I won't tell you more… on the tour I'll tell you.
  • Ferrándiz and Carbonell Square. I'll just tell you that until not so long ago around 800 people worked here.
  • Gisbert Painter Square. It is a square full of bars, It also houses a palace…. I won't tell you more lol
  • Mario Silvestre Cultural Center. In the past it housed one of the most important banks at the national level. Alcoy had power...
  • San Lorenzo Street. There I will tell you what its old name was and you will learn something that you can only do in cities like Valencia, Barcelona or Alcoy... I'll leave it there hahaha
  • Spain Square. We will return to the starting point but having already discovered the city of Alcoy.


As I tell you above it is a summary, on the tour we will discover many more things that will not leave you indifferent.
