Apparently the name of this street comes from a miracle of S. Vicente Ferrer, who in the face of a pronounced drought predicted that raindrops as large as hazelnuts would fall.

The doctor and Nobel laureate, Santiago Ramón y Cajal, lived on this street for a time.

In a newly built house located at 11 of the street and through a glass, you can see a door of the Roman wall from the 2nd century BC.

In this square, located outside the walls in times of Muslim Valencia, the community of citizens gathered on special occasions (the sar'ia). That gave name to the neighborhood located next to (the Xerea), and within the wall.

The building on the left is the Bancaja Cultural Centre. Dates from 1891 and was remodeled in 1980-1982. Of its original interior layout there is nothing left to adapt the building for cultural work. 1891 only preserves the facades.

In the foreground is a statue of San Vicente Ferrer, who is here since 1960. This is attributed to Ignacio Vergara, but not much security. The statue is located in the same square where it was placed the convent of San Vicente Ferrer and near his birthplace.

In the garden or Patio de los Naranjos there a starry source is not the original, but a recent neo-Gothic building. The garden is watered with water from a well located in the nearby street cinched. With the water from this well is also supplied through a cenia or waterwheel built in 1531, a source at the Market Square, opposite the Lonja.

The garden is up to Consolat del Mar, which was where the problems were resolved maritime trade. This is already Renaissance style and has a coffered ceiling that was formerly in the House of the City.

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 this square is the palace (former monastery) and the church called the Temple.

Although the land on which they settle belonged since the early fourteenth century, the Order of Montesa, still retained the name of the Temple. Indeed, in 1317 the Order of Montesa inherited the monastery and church, being dissolved the Order of the Temple.

In this street is the building that was Hospital of Poor Priests, whose aim was to assist the needy priests of the city. The building is set around an arcaded cloister with ceramic panels. The year of its foundation seems that 1356 was.

In one of its rooms San Luis Beltran died in 1581.

In 2003, after a renovation, she regained its residential function, now serving senior center.

Valencia Cathedral was started in the 13th century, being the master builder Arnau Vidal. The small difference in height between the central nave and the lateral ones meant that it did not need flying buttresses to counteract the thrust of the vault, resulting somewhat squat, unlike most Gothic constructions, which tend towards the top.

The Door of the Apostles (in the photo), is already the fourteenth century and was made by Nicolás de Ancona in a style of clear French influence.

At this door, the Water Court meets every Thursday, an irrigation jury in charge of solving conflicts that may arise between the farmers of the of Irrigators community from the valencian garden.
