Munoz Duenas

For this reason, besides the typical Valencian and the costumes shown in magnificent facade panels, painted by the Valencian artist Maumejean Mongrel and made Brothers in Madrid, we have in the bar, a beautiful ceramic panels representing different environments Valencian landscape, the lagoon, the cabin, flowers, Micalet, orchards, these panels were made by the distinguished painter, potter in the house Munoz Duenas “Tile Antonio Bayarri Brothers” factory located at the entrance of Burjasot. The same is true of all that revives color decorating the facade with plants, oranges and orange blossoms that made majolica covering many areas, including large, the cladding as freeing the proper structural elements. This we have discussed, about the proper role of these regional elements can be seen in other seasons: Abando in Bilbao, at many stations Portugal, at the station of Bruges in Belgium in the station Lens … and many others. The same effect is profuse symbolic repetition of elements relating to the Company of Northern Railway Road, reflected in the different logos that appear in many different parts of the station and on the set of markings with reading “Caminos de Hierro the North. ” This serves to confirm the thought that Valencia station is not simply a magnificent station which provides a certain services … but appears as a monumental architecture that represents a power, whether cultural, industrial, political or commercial, and in this case represents the power of the Iron Company of North Road.

In the case of Valencia, the power of this company was very strong, remember that in 1892 took charge of the Railway Society Almansa-Valencia-Tarragona, which begins a few months later also in charge of Valencia line Utiel and who in 1897 built a branch line linking the station of Valencia and Aragon (Aragon call) with the line of Utiel. This coupled with its large, since, RU, were together with the Company MZA, the most important in Spain, hence the familiar competition. Another interesting aspect of this season of the North, was the urban impact caused in the city of Valencia, remodeling the entire center of the city, one of the key factors that influenced to create the new civic center in the current Valencia Square and I would refer, from here, the reader to my book on “Demetri Ribes,” in which a whole chapter devoted to this subject, which is developed in detail. LOCATION The main entrance to the station is located on Calle Xativa 24, while having other access in the corner Bailen Marzal Math. The set of tracks and building is flanked on the streets Alicante and dance to the east and west and north Jativa. To the south runs the common beam railway lines depart from the station well connected terminal.Esta network, with two of its stations within the precincts of the station and another (Placa Espanya) a few minutes a station. this foot of the rail traffic expected to now move to welcome the new season when the ambient high speed train reaches the city of Valencia, and considering the possibility that current building will become cultural or museum space. ‘.
