Ventured into the city yet again. Gosh there are some stunning buildings here. So old and absolutely beautiful. It's crazy I'll be walking throughout the city and then I'll of a sudden Im passing by the Valencia defensive tours from the early 1400's.
I'm still not use to that. No one acts like its a big deal because they are just part of Valencia. In America we don't have "really old" things. And if we do they are usually between 300-400 years old max. So to see stuff like this all the time is amazing to me.
Enjoying the sunshine on my morning walk.
More beautiful architecture.
During my walk a came a cross a little Museum. I had no idea what kind of museum it was (couldn't understand the spanish sign) but decided to purchase a ticket and go in anyways. It was in a beautiful house. How could I resist.
Swoon. Beautiful woodwork and stunning tiles.
So it turns out it was the museum of toy soldiers. Had I been able to read the sign I'm almost positive I wouldn't have gone in. But for one time in my life I was glad I didn't understand spanish and I'm really happy that I actually went inside.
The whole museum was made up of thousands upon thousand of teeny tiny detailed figurines.
Room after room of battle scenes recreated. It was very interesting.
I enjoyed looking at the ones portraying the conquistadors coming to the Aztecs.
And here with the Mayans.
They also had some action figurines and other toys. I was really surprised to see Babar!! One of my favorite shows from childhood.
I thought this one was cute!
Lord of the Rings
Anyways it was a very unique museum and I really enjoyed my time there!
There are a few more pictures on my flickr if you'd like to see more.
Well who knows what neat things I will find on my next adventure.
Happy Friday Friends!!
