How silk transformed Valencia
To speak of silk is to speak of a golden era for Valencia, which led to the transformation of the landscape and the way of life in the city for centuries.
In the 15th century, the Gremi de Velluters, the silk velvet weavers’ guild in Valencia, established themselves in the building now housing the Silk Museum, which you can visit to explore all its secrets: the discovery of silk, the silkworm raising, the way this luxurious material was produced in the almost 5000 looms around the city and the success of silk fabrics in the 18th century.
