Neighborhood: La Malvarrosa

You can visit the Reales Atarazanas, which are located next to the plaza del Tribunal de les Aigues at the bottom of Avenida del Puerto. This is a unique and important building within the city's naval and mercantile history. The original construction dates back to the 14th century and was where ships were formerly built. Its architecture is clear indication of the wealth achieved in Valencia and the importance of commerce, especially in the 15th century. Today the Atarazanas serves a very different purpose. It now houses the JoaquĆ­n Saludes Maritime Museum, with a valuable collection of archaeological pieces and models, including the famous Libro del Consulado del Mar (Sea Consulate Log). Admission: free
