It´s time to visit an inner city surrounded by two Natural Parcs: Alcoy. City located

within the Province of Alicante was founded in the XIIIth century, but it was in the XIX century

during the industrial revolution when it flourished.

A special street called St. Nicolás has the main modernist buildings to be explored and

delighted. Through different modernist private houses such us: “The peakcook house” we will

enjoy and marvel this special style created by bourgeoisie to show the economical splendour of

their industrial families during the XIXth and XXth centuries. Other private buildings are located

close like: The Circulo Industrial and its modernist library: private Institution created in 1868

by the industrial bourgeoisie of Alcoy.

We will continue this modernist tour visiting some other special façades where for the

very first time in the Valencian history, two textile factories created a public square.

Our tour will finish visiting the Llotja de Saint George, a singular construction that

simulates the skeleton of a dragon designed by the famous architect and engineer Santiago

Calatrava.
