Containing possibly the highest concentration of murals, including ones from famous Spanish street artists like Escif, Deih, and Julieta, El Carmen is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Valencia today. 

Once filled with nothing but dilapidated buildings, this neighbourhood was far from a desirable place to be. But talented street artists have entirely transformed it with their lovely artworks. And the best thing? These pieces are free to view.

Besides the street art, it is also home to a few excellent art museums that are worth checking out too.

It also seems like she has turned the plaza into her own little outdoor art gallery, as the shop next door also showcases another piece by her. Under the cast of the sunlight, the shadows create a three-dimensional effect, which looks great from any angle and is sure to add a unique flair to your Instagram feed!
