Housed in Marquis de Dos Aguas Palace, the National Museum of Ceramics is home to a great collection of Spanish, local Valencian and foreign ceramics. The collection largely consists of contributions donated by its founder, Manuel Gonzalez Marti, and showcases a comprehensive look at ceramic production and design over the centuries.
Found right in the heart of Valencia’s shopping district, you’ll be mesmerised as you arrive at Marquis de Dos Aguas Palace. Clearly one of the most remarkable buildings in Valencia, this building deserves a visit in itself. With its impressive marble façade and entrance, it is known to stop passers by and never fails to amaze visitors.
Gothic style in its original form, Marquis de Dos Aguas Palace dates back to the XV century, with considerable remodelling in the XVII century, which gave the building its Baroque and Rococco (late Baroque) touches.
