SHOPPING: NOVEDADES CASINO
This is the real deal. Check out this tiny independent shop in the historic centre of the Barrio del Carmen. Here is a place that gives you hope that not all Mediterranean shopping in Valencia is going to be engulfed & swamped by soulless multi-national chains and low-cost tourist traps.
The idea of the shop was created by Pablo Casino, the informed owner who can always be found here. He has put together old posters and books and photographs from today and yesteryear. He pays special attention to Valencian iconography that is both local and popular, without forgetting material that reflects the intense changes that the city has experienced in different epochs.
You can really refresh your memory here as well as connecting to the present, whilst enjoying the display of old posters and graphic pieces as well as contemporary photography, illustrations, stamps, books and the work of local artists. This is a space that is a mixture of gallery, a curiosity shop and a souvenir shop. Only if you visit in person can you truly appreciate it.
