Storyline

Every day, you make your way to the plaza. Every day, you read the newspaper, diligently following all the events. Every day, you return to your seaside home, feeling peaceful, calm and… bored.
You thought the 20th century would bring great art to the world, but it seems there will be nothing else for a retired art patron such as yourself.
 
Today’s a day like another; you’ll go the plaza; you’ll read the paper, but today, you’ll find something that’ll make you fall in love with art all over again.

It had us learning and exploring parts of Valencia you don’t necessarily read about near the beach! We found one of the dirrections a little misleading, but with a hint we found a our way.

Was great to explore El Cabanyal’s streets and interesting murals and tiled houses. Clue 4 didn’t translate well in English and made that clue challenging and Clue nine was challenging as I don’t believe it translated right and the clue didn’t actually help. All in all great afternoon spent exploring 🥰

It was nice but we did better quests before. The starting point of the route wasn’t correct, also at the rabbit mural we had to go right instead of left. The story was a bit lame. The facts about the neigbourhood were really interesting.
