Overview

The "Palau de la Generalitat" is a renovated building which houses the executive branch of the Valencian Autonomous Community, the Generalitat. The palace was constructed in the 15th century and its style is gothic. In 1421, this palace was the Royal Court building for the kingdom of Valencia. Other layers were added on later, such as the Renaissance ceilings with gold in-lays and clearly Moorish influences. There are also valuable paintings by ZariƱena in the main boardroom. This unique building can only be admired from the exterior, as is the case with most government buildings in the area, but a leisurely stroll through the old quarter is always a treat.
