If you live in Valencia or you are planning a visit to the city during the first days of May, don’t miss this opportunity to get to know some of the most emblematic buildings in the city, completely free of charge thanks to guided tours, conferences, workshops, etc.
Open House Valencia is Valencia’s main annual event with the world of architecture. During the first weekend of the month of May (from 3 to 5), Valencia will open the doors of its 50 best buildings of all types, shapes and sizes. OHV is an initiative of AEPU, the European Association of Urban Landscape and aims at architectural reflection and about the design of citizen spaces. But it also houses an important aspect of leisure and gastronomy.
OHV is a project open to all and nonprofit, of which Valencia will be the venue for the first time in 2019, directed mainly at Valencian people but with a national and international projection of the first order. The goal of OHV is for the public to live the city and its culture in an intense and open manner in a clear way and to spread the values of our society through activities guided by architecture professionals.
The guides, for 3 days, will help visitors understand the architecture of Valencia through various itineraries, activities and conferences totally free. For the weekend of OHV 2019, tens of thousands of people are expected to participate in its multiple activities.
Among the activities that will take place there are gastronomic evenings, musical encounters, cinema, illustration, photography and architecture, among many others.
Some of the buildings you can visit are: Valencia City Hall, Hoffman House, Musical Cultural Center, the Valencian Parliament, the Agora, La Fe University Hospital, Hemisféric, Church of San Nicolás, Central Market, Oceanogràfic, Veles e Vents and many more.
This Friday, March 29, OHV kicks off with a welcome party where you will have screenings, debates and a concert. An event not to be missed it!
