Following the previous article in which we suggested a delicious visit to some Chocolate Museums – factories in Sueca and Villajoyosa, where there is a great tradition of handcrafted chocolate making, today we suggest a visit to two Chocolate Museums – factories in the area that are also largely known: Pérez and Valor. It is a great excursion to do with children from Valencia, during a getaway or some holidays, which will combine the didactic of learning how chocolate is made with the delicious chance to taste it personally. Write it down in your plans for when you come to Valencia!
Pérez Chocolate Museum – factory
By requesting a previous appointment, you can have as a guide the grandson of its founder, in 1874. During the visit he will explain the roasting of the grain, how the manual mills used to work and their evolution to animal traction, diesel and electricity, among other inventions and advances in the chocolate making. Apart from the visit to the factory and the museum, there is a small shop with Pérez Chocolate products. They also make visits for groups and have an online shop.
