Valencia, Museo de la Ceramica

This is the most photographed historic buidling in Valencia, according to our pocket guides:  The National Ceramics Museum or Museo NAcional de Ceramica y Artes Suntuarias Gonzales Marti.  It is housed in a palace from the 15th century and has a magnificent alabaster entrance (see above). Below: detail.

Inside, you can visit the carriages room (two pieces from the 18th century) and on upper floors, dating from the 19th century, medieval ceramicas and tiles.
Above and below: ceiling, detail.

Above and the next photos: the kitchen at the palace.
