Located in the center of the city, about 4-5 minutes walk from the Colón metro station, this precious example of Valencian modernism reflects the ideology of the Valencian bourgeois society booming at that time.

It was completely restored in 2003 and today it houses dozens of chic restaurants, shops, bars or cafes. It is the perfect place to have one of Valencia’s famous drinks such as refreshing Horchata.
