Historic Site Tourist Spot
Explore this fortified palace, which served as the residence of the royal dukes of Gandía, and from 1485, the powerful Borja family. Admire the varied architectural styles of Palau Ducal Dels Borja: each of the 11 dukes who lived here contributed to its construction according to the artistic taste of his time. Discover Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and neo-Gothic elements. Marvel at the palace’s opulently decorated rooms, particularly the grandeur of the golden gallery and the assembly hall. Look up at the ceiling of the neo-Gothic chapel, which imitates a starry vault decorated with four angels. Don’t forget to pick up your informational leaflet from the reception to learn more about the palace and those who lived there.

  • I liked it ! Its impressive. Interesting part of the History was born and preserved there. Suggest a visit to this place, for sure! Cheap entrance- 6€/ 7€ guided visit ( if you go around 16.00, might be lucky to be alone in the Palace with a guide only for you!) Filming and photos are permitted!
  • Good place
  • Very interesting
  • We were doing a guided tour. Very nice guide. The Palace has a large parade ground. What I liked most is a very long Hall, separated by Golden doors, where dances were made. As the women wore very wide skirts, made folding doors so that they could pass more easily.
