Concierge.com's insider take:

The National Ceramics Museum is housed behind the elaborate marble facade of the 18th-century Palacio del Marqués de Dos Aguas. Valencia's history as an epicenter of Spanish ceramics goes back to the Middle Ages, when the region's Arab rulers introduced new lead-glazing techniques. Today, the architectural use of ceramic tiles and plates can be admired on balconies, floors, and vintage shop-fronts around town. Most of the museum exhibits hail from the region's main centers of ceramic production, like Manises and Paterna; they trace the development of pottery from prehistory and the ancient Greek and Roman eras up to the 20th century, represented by works of Mariano Benlliure and Picasso.

Closed Mondays.
