Right in the epicenter of the fertile region of Valencia you were erected almost like a monument in the firts years of the XIX century where those simple and hopeful peasants found in you a place of meeting where they could comment the tasks of the day accompanied is those improvised social gatherings with a glass of winw and some food.
The destiny and the iron will of Juan Bautista Navarro dols who with an anticipated vision, had the clarly idea of constructing a tavern as a retail stablishment to sell wine to the peasants of the area due to the lack of that service.
The idea cristallized and "The famós" began its timid course rather unconscious of the expansion that was taking place with the pass of time through his descendants Vicent and Jose María who converted it into a traditional and famous restaurant with a consolidated antiquity of more than a century.
You have accompanied in your time the famous chapel of Vera ("Camino de Vera") dated in the XVII century whose suggestive environment was reflected in the canvas of famous painters attracted by the light and the atmosphere of that place.
Perhaps the influence of these stylized painter's easels and tubes of paint inoculated the virus of Art to one of the heirs, Vicente Navarro "EL FAMÓS", turning him in a versatile painter who has contributed the plasticity of a very personal art on the walls of that dining room, turning it in the Gastronomical Museum where the fellow diners taste paellas made with firewood, grilled rabbit and many more typical specialities of the Valencian cuisine, togetter with the pleasure of tasting excelent wines and homemade dessets with put the finishing touch to a good meal and at the same time and without intending it beforehand your retinas receive the influence of the art that supports their walls.
That artistic atmosphere makes it specially attractive for all the public and thus its no wonder that there coincide professors, doctors, journalists, politicians, sportmen, students and people from all social layers.
In this atmosphere it receives celebrations of firts communions, weddings, baptisms, working meals and everithing that requires a gay and familiar place wheere it is possible to gather around a table with an apetizing menu.
It has not gone unnoticed by its existence and the writer B. San Martín Morales of the Royal Spanish Academy of Language, a native of Valencia, whose books wrote "Land Levantine" which was awarded in 1920 by the Circle of Fine Arts, where there is explicit reference to the great-grandparents of the current owners appearing there the name of "CASA tHE FAMOS".
