As passionate street art fans, Valencia is something similar to our Mecca. The Spanish city is teeming with unique graffiti and murals, which makes for fascinating sightseeing throughout local neighborhoods!

Coming back to Escif and Blu, the two impressive murals to see are located on Plaça de Tossal in the heart of El Carmen, the one on the left is from Escif, the one on the right showing Moses is from the hands of the Italian street artist Blu.

And I forgot to talk about Pichi & Avo, two great Valencian artists. Since 2014 their art is about Greek Mythology.

Nice memories! For Valencia, I suggest Escif with his stop motion falling car and Blu with his Moses, together on a place (I forgot the name...) my favorites!

[…] like about other cities of a similar size. Being right on the Mediterranean coast and having some excellent street art doesn’t hurt […]

Tons of new street art. We haven't wondered around Carmen yet much. But eager to see the new art for ourselves. Great work!

Thanks guys! I guess many of the pieces that we saw aren't there anymore now, replaced by new graffiti :) Enjoy being 'home' for a while, it must be good after such a long time in South America!!
