The Eixample and Quatre carreres. City of neighbourhoods
A tour of the part of the city that best sums up the formation of the great Valencia: its horticultural origins, the demolition of the wall, expansion of the crossroads of centuries, the creation of the bourgeois classes and the projection towards the future. The reader is carried away by the images of the photographer Eva Ripoll and the texts of the journalist Pilar Algarra for this gentle walk through the cosmopolitan Ruzafa, the flirtatious Pla del Remei, the elegant Gran Via, the new bed of the Turia and the urbanized arteries that connect the city with the orchards and the Albufera. The authors let the pedestrian-reader draw their own conclusions about the generous grandeur of Valencian Art Deco and its floral relationship. They simply insinuate, point out, point out, quote… and they prepare each page as if it were a gift.
