The gateway of Valencia

Situated in the Palace of the Marquis of Dos Aguas, the González Martí National Museum of Ceramics and Sumptuary Arts is the result of the passion for ceramics and collecting of the founder (González Martí).

When you walk through the alabaster door of the palace, a veritable Valencian baroque gem and an undisputable symbol of the city, you will discover sumptuous palace rooms with original furniture, 18th-century carriages, a collection of paintings by Ignacio Pinazo, gold items, furniture, jewellery, tapestry, etc., and of course, magnificent examples of ceramic pieces, mainly from the Region of Valencia (Paterna, Manises, Alcora...).
