Although the works began in 1422, it is from 1481 when the important extensions of this palace are made, under the responsibility of Francesc Martínez de Biulaigua, Joan Guiverro and Pere Compte; that they raised the central body of the current palace. Starting in 1518, Joan Montano and Joan Corbera built the tower facing the Plaza de la Virgen; while the tower that falls on the Plaza de Manises is modern, already from the 20th century and built in imitation of the previous one.

In 1882 this cloister was covered and the refectory and the chapter house were prepared for the new museum functions and the School of Fine Arts. And, as of 1994, the divisions and the roof of the Gothic cloister will be eliminated, thus recovering its original architecture.

The name of this square does not come from a supposed saint so named, but from the discovery of a bundle, in the 13th century, which, when opened, contained an image of Christ. In this way it was called the Holy Bulge of Jesus (Sant Bult in Valencian). The image of Christ is usually kept in the Sant Bult Home School Board, located on En Blanch street.

This street is named after a type of leather tanners who in the Middle Ages worked with deer, roe deer, fallow deer and sheep skins to make gloves and parchments.

The building on the left, from 1870, was dedicated to cockfighting, a hobby that lasted until 1936. It was renovated in the years 1990-1991 to be used as an exhibition hall. It belongs to the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana.

This street used to have many artisan shops that manufactured and sold leather goods, especially belts, hence the name.

At the beginning of this street there is a ceramic panel that represents Jesus at the time of being presented in the temple.

On the street there are several antique shops and Bodegas Baviera, a house founded in 1870.
