Ducal Palace of the Borgias

The Palau Ducal dels Borja is one of the most important historical buildings in the Valencian Community and one of the few remaining traces of the life of the well-known Borja family in Valencian territory. The 11 dukes of the well-known saga remodelled and adapted the house to their needs, turning the Palau Ducal into an assortment of different architectural and decorative styles designed over almost three centuries. In the building, Gothic, Mudejar, Baroque and, finally, Neoclassical coexist. Around 50,000 visitors pass through Palau Ducal every year.
