A guided tour with Ruta Modernista of Alcoy will allow you to learn first-hand an important part of the history of the city. Let yourself be surprised by the architecture of the city! The "Casa del Pavo" or the Industrial Circle are the main exponents of this artistic movement and of this interesting social time.

One of the most emblematic buildings in Alcoy is the "Casa del Pavo". It was built by the architect Vicent Pascual Pastor with the collaboration of one of the most important painters in the 19th century in the city, Ferran Cabrera Esquina. The building owes its name to the turkey that crowns the lintels of the doors. 

The Industrial Circle is located in the centre of the historical town of Alcoy. Its façade, in modernist style with some Viennese influence, was designed by Timoteo Briet in 1904. It has the features of the architectural movement of the Sezession, a combination of modernist geometric and vegetal elements. The history of the Industrial Circle is a true reflection of the economic and industrial history of Alcoy.

This route can be done with Quality Tours Mariola, a company that offers end-of-school year excursions, guided visits, excursions to theme parks and services as travel agency. A highly attractive offer that combines entertainment and culture for an unforgettable experience for everyone.
