Villages of the West. City of neighbourhoods
The districts of Benimàmet and Beniferri have been part of the city of Valencia since the late twentieth century, but today they still retain their customs, traditions and essence as a “town”. Strolling through its quiet streets and squares, talking to its welcoming inhabitants, shopping in its shops, some of them centuries old, and through which several generations have passed, or enjoying its old towns, which keep traces of their history, make visitors forget that they belong to a large city. This book tries to offer a portrait of the districts that are part of Pueblos del Oeste (district 18) from their origins to the present, and of the tireless struggle that for decades their residents have carried out to defend what they have always considered their rights.
