VISIT “EL CABANYAL” (B1)

The Guardian tells its readers to visit El Cabanyal

The district of Valencia is under threat of demolition 

The Guardian British newspaper has recommended that its readers visit the El Cabanyal district of Valencia City, before it is demolished.

The city’s P.P. Mayor, Rita Barberá has been trying to demolish the houses in the bohemian district which was the old fishermen’s area, despite fierce opposition from Madrid and the Ministry for Culture.The Guardian asks what is the price that Valencia must pay for its rapid progress. It describes El Cabanyal as ‘a working class area and a joy of the art-nouveau style’.Read the Guardian piece here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/2010/may/08/valencia-el-cabanyal-neighbourhood-spainRead more: http://www.typicallyspanish.com/news/publish/article_26039.shtml#ixzz0ncgTAcJE
