Until 2020, there was a unique store in the city in one corner of the square: the Hija de Blas Luna hardware store. In it they were sold from metallic cloth, to any tool for the field; it looked more like a rural store.

A little further on, on the same sidewalk, was a movie projector repair shop.

This hospital is the first in Spain to apply the model that emerged in northern Italy, with a central space from where all the wards were controlled and two infirmaries where patients could be separated by sex and ailments. Of the two infirmaries, only the one that has been transformed into a public library remains standing today. The other was demolished in 1974 and loose pieces remain in the gardens (columns, capitals, etc.).

The Benicarló palace, on the left, is the current seat of the Valencian Courts. The works on this palace were started in the 15th century by Francesc Martínez Biulaigua, who soon died. He was succeeded by several teachers, among them Pere Compte, who made the staircase to the courtyard.

The palace was the residence of the Borja family in Valencia, but in 1870 it became the property of the Count of Benicarló. During the Civil War it was the seat of the Republican Government and after the Civil War it was the official residence of Franco during his visits to Valencia. From 1973 it was the headquarters of the National Movement and in 1982 the headquarters of the first Valencian autonomous government.

The water of the lake flows from the Molí del Sol, which in the future will become a museum on the River Turia.

This park, despite its few years, is poorly maintained (stones from the walls that fall and are not repaired, dirty pond water, etc.).
