According to the laws of the Indies, he served as a starting point for the grid that would be set for later constructions that were held in the newly founded localidad.1 in the 17TH century is officially called Plaza Mayor, naming then changes to Mercado2 square by different uses given.

All with the pretext of embellish this site historic and emblematic of the great Valencia
