Cabanyal (Valencia), Spain

The Cabanyal district is a historical neighbourhood in Valencia, close to the sea and Valencia beach (the Malvarrosa). But in the last years there is a huge controversy because the local government wants to extend a big avenue crossing the district, what would suppose the destruction of tens of buildings.

Some people support the avenue extension, because it's one of the most marginal zones in Valencia, some are against because it's a protected area plenty of beautiful little houses built at the early 20th century.

The Cabanyal in a Valencia map.



20.000 people live there, and the urbanism is very special, typical of a fishermen neighbourhood with long streets in parallel to the beach, low buildings...

The Cabanyal, in red the zone that would be crossed by the Blasco Ibáñez avenue.



I was in may and I have several feelings. Yes, some areas are not really good, a lot of children in the streets instead of school, a certain insecurity sensation... But a very pintoresque and special area, that would be destroyed.

Typical Cabanyal houses. Most of the houses are nothing special one by one, but the whole neihgbourhood is special.

The neighbours have different opinions too. Some houses like this had banners supporting the avenue extension. At the pic, in valencian language, "The neighbours of the Cabanyal yes we want the extension of Blasco Ibáñez avenue".

Hay zonas que parecen bastante degradadas, con algunos solares de casas derribadas recientemente.

Nice. Very quaint. The low number of floors make it look like a fishing village in the big city. It also resembles the Chinese style shophouses. What kind of businesses are there now? Seems like a prime candidate for gentifrication.

Such a waste if some would be destroyed.

Something similar, the avenue would suppose the automatic demolition of 600 buildings, and would increase the value of the land, so some other low buildings would be sold to build new and higher ones. Some have been already demolished... like this, the Palm tree house, built in 1909.

What a stupid idea to put a massive avenue through this seemingly lovely neighbourhood. Very nice houses, especially the tile-covered ones.

This is the little symbol of Cabanyal, a narrow house, a little popular modernist house with a tiles panel with a scene of fishermen and the year of construction: 1919.
