Almudin Museum, Valencia

Almudin Museum, Valencia

The Almudin was built in the 16th century and has been used for various functions since that time. The original purpose was to store wheat. This building also served as a distribution center for the all important grain grown in the area. There are murals on the inside of the building depicting harvests of wheat being brought into town.

When entering the location, it is easy to see that there was once an open air courtyard that has since been covered over to make the internal area larger. The archways in the building are just lovely and the murals over them are well worth coming to see. It is really these murals that are the drawing point of this old building. In fact, this structure is a national historic monument, as well as an artistic monument.

The space is now used to house temporary exhibits of archeology and art. Admission is free and it is open daily except for Mondays. Check the schedule for open hours as they vary, and the building is closed during the noon time.
