In this street there are three emblematic buildings of the city of Valencia: the North Station, the Plaza de Toros and the Luis Vives Institute.

The Luis Vives Institute dates from 1562, although most of what is preserved already belongs to the 18th century. At first it was called Colegio San Pablo and it was a teaching center of the Society of Jesus. In 1859 it was renamed the Luis Vives Institute and in 1978 it underwent an unfortunate restoration. The Valencian writer Max Aub studied there.
