The conference will be online, but the Instituto Universitario de Restauración del Patrimonio (IRP), an institution that hosts RECH 6, is based in the city of Valencia.
Valencia is a city with more than 2000 years of history that is located on the southeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula. It is a cosmopolitan city that combines history, tradition and modernity, and it is the third largest city in Spain, behind Madrid and Barcelona.
Its historic centre is characterized for being one of the largest in Europe, where a great variety of religious and civil monuments of different artistic styles coexist, like the "Lonja building" in Valencian civil gothic style, declared in 1996 a World Heritage Site by UNESCO; the Cathedral; the "Basílica de la Virgen de los Desamparados"; the currently called “Valencian Sistine Chapel” Church of San Nicolás; the "Palace of the Marqués de Dos Aguas" in baroque style; or the buildings of the "Mercado Central" and the "Estación del Norte" in Valencian modernist style.
The historical-artistic heritage of the city is completed by the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, a cultural complex of modern architecture that has become one of the icons of Valencia.
The city also has a wide environmental offer, among which are its two urban beaches, the huerta valenciana and the Albufera Natural Park, a humid area formed by a coastal lagoon.
Last but not least, Valencia is world famous for the Fallas festival, catalogued as a Fiesta of International Tourist Interest and inscribed in 2016 by UNESCO on its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
