The church of San Sebastián was that of the convent of the same name and was built in the 16th century, demolishing and building another in its place in the 18th century. The bell tower was finished already at the beginning of the 20th century. Inside it has a tiled plinth that runs through the entire temple and dates from 1742.

The small square where the church is located was renovated in 2019.

The Botanical Garden of Valencia has its beginning in the sixteenth century, in the so-called Hort de Simples (Garden of Simples), with the planting of medicinal plants by the University of Valencia. But it was already in the eighteenth century, with the ideas of the Enlightenment and the support of the Royal Economic Society of Friends of the Country, when it had the decisive impulse and more scientific criteria.

As early as 1733, there was talk at the University of Valencia of creating a garden that should facilitate the city. But it will not be until 1757 when the rector Lores directly proposes the creation of a botanical garden near the Alameda. In 1778 the city approved it, but it would take twenty more years for it to become a reality.
