This station, the work of the architect Demetrio Ribes, was designed in 1906 for the Compañía de Ferrocarriles del Norte. It is one of the buildings inspired by Viennese modernism (Viennese Secession) that we can see in Valencia. It was inaugurated in 1917.

Inside the station, its hall stands out, with a ceiling of wooden beams and vaults covered with trencadís (chunks tiles). The lockers are made of wood and glass inlaid with trencadís. The walls are also covered with wood and ceramic. In Demetrio Ribes it was a constant to break down the barriers between artist and craftsman.

This neighborhood has an interesting popular architecture from the beginning of the 20th century.

The neighborhood currently has a large Asian colony, with its shops and bars. It is also home to the provincial office of the National Institute of Social Security, on Calle de Bailén.
