Today's Valencian Parliament is seated in the Benicarlo Palace in central San Lorenzo plaza. The construction of this building, recently renovated, dates back to the 15th Century. Its general style is Gothic, though the facade evidences various transformations and make-overs suited to the tastes and styles of the various centuries since its original construction. In its beginnings it was a palace for an illustrious Valencian family, the Dukes of Gandia. The back of the palace hides a lush garden that evokes memories of the grandeur achieved by this ancient city in the past. Unfortunately, it cannot be visited.
