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.

The Market Square is located in the old suburb of La Boatella. Jaime I granted a privilege in 1261 for a permanent market to be installed here.

The square was used to organize jousts and shows like those carried out by Alfonso the Magnanimous. It was also the place of executions since the beginning of the 15th century (the gallows was located here). It also served, from 1400 to 1859, to celebrate bullfights.

The Lonja de Valencia has had various uses. It even became a military barracks, after the War of Succession and until 1762. Its gardens were used as a kitchen for the troops, which caused serious deterioration.

During the Civil War, when the government of the Republic was established in Valencia, it was used as a meeting of the Spanish Courts in November 1936.

The Museum of Natural Sciences is located in a building built in the Jardines del Real. It is a museum that allows you to admire groups such as the Botet collection, previously exhibited in the Almudín, with its sample of fossils from South America.

The museum allows a journey through knowledge and natural history, taking special care of those contents that refer to the Valencian Community. There is from a reproduction of a prehistoric cave to a reconstruction of the study of Ramón y Cajal.

This street is named for the old butcher shops that were on it, although today there are none left.

Formerly, as it appears in a tile plate, it was called the Portal del Coixo (Portal del Cojo). The name was due to the fact that the street led to a gate in the wall whose guardian was lame.

This church was completed in 1261 and is the oldest preserved church in Valencia. Since 1987 he has belonged to Opus Dei.

The Knights of Saint John of the Hospital of Jerusalem participated in the conquest of Valencia with Jaime I and the latter, in 1238, donated the land on which there was a mosque to said Order so that his church could be built.

The building on the left is the Palacio de Raga, also called the Palacio de los Marquesses de González de Quirós. The neoclassical palace is today occupied by a residence for the elderly and was previously the headquarters of the Teresian Institute, dedicated to teaching.

To the right is the Jimmy Glass Club jazz club.
