Manises, Valencia

MCM Museum Of Ceramics

The only architecturally relevant civil building from the 18th century that can be seen in Manises. It was built in 1784 by a family of Italian origin (the Ferraro-Causa) who made their fortune in the city of Valencia by trading wool and silk. In 1985 the facilities were extended to become a monographic museum of ceramics, adding a new area at the back of the pre-existing building, and restoring what had been preserved from the original building. The articulation between the old and new buildings - by building stairs and ramps around a central well, topped by a translucent vault - is noteworthy because it offers a sequential route through all the rooms in an ascending spiral.
