Apparently, the name of this street derives from the fact that small boats were made in it, which were later transported by carts to the sea. The street was near the old Pescadores neighborhood.

This street was also called Vall Cobert (Covered Moat) since the moat and the Muslim wall ran through here.

The origins of this theater are in 1770, when the City acquired the drawings of a theater of Italian style. For various problems did not begin until 1808 and opened in 1832 without being completed. In 1845 inside it is remodeled by Sebastián Monleón and Jose Perez. The facade, 1854, the Jose Zacarias Camaña performed. It's lobby was remodeled in 1946.

The bell tower of this church dates from the early seventeenth century and will serve as a model for other bell towers in Valencia.

On the main portal, the one that overlooks Calle San Vicente Mártir, you can see the mark of the Gothic rose window. The new cover is already from the 18th century.

This long street is actually a piece of the famous Roman Via Augusta. Around 1850 the street was widened by 10 m. at 14 m. wide. Medieval buildings disappeared, in this section that goes from the Plaza de la Reina to the Plaza de la Ayuntamiento, and the street was filled with nineteenth-century buildings that have come down to us.

In 1882, a textile shop located in this street called Casa Conejos, was the first to have electric lighting in all of Valencia. In 1886 electric lighting was already installed throughout the city, however gas street lamps were still used for the streets.

In the 30s of the 20th century, the nineteenth-century buildings on Calle San Vicente began to be replaced by others in the Rationalist and Art Deco style. This happened in the section that goes from María Cristina avenue to San Agustín square.

In 1844 it was one of the first streets to be illuminated with gas streetlights and the first cinemas (Romea, Turia, etc.) were also established there. The Olympia cinema, now a theater, was built on the grounds of the convent of San Gregorio, demolished in 1911.

This street, which takes the curious name of rinconada, is dedicated to a writer and member of the Royal Academy of the Spanish Language who died in 1964.

The street is located where the old Jewish quarter or call of Valencia used to be, very close to where the Valencian philosopher Luis Vives had his house. The building on the right is the Palace of the Dukes of Cardona, originally from the 18th century, formerly the Roma hotel and currently converted into the Sh Inglés hotel.

The main façade of the palace of the Marqués de Dos Aguas faces this street..

The origin of this palace dates back to the 14th-15th centuries, but its current configuration corresponds to the interventions carried out since the 18th century. In 1740, Hipólito Rovira carried out a profound intervention on the building, in which Ignacio Vergara and Luis Domingo also participated.

During the 19th century it underwent an important reform where the facades were covered with imitation marble stucco, balustrades, imposts, etc. were added. All this harmonizing with the alabaster cover.

Declared a historical-artistic monument in 1941, in 1949 the State bought it to house the ceramic collection of Manuel González Martí. The museum opens in 1954.

Between the 60s and 70s of the 20th century there was a mimetic expansion of the palace, but between 1991 and 1998 there was a comprehensive reform that sought to recover the 19th century palace.

The monumental portal, from the 18th century, was made by Ignacio Vergara following the drawings of Hipólito Rovira. Above the façade is presided over by the Virgen del Rosario, the work of Francisco Molinelli, and below the two Atlanteans pouring water stand out, one on each side of the façade, a clear allusion to the marquisate of Dos Aguas. It is an façade rococo style. At that time the entire facade of the palace was covered with frescoes by Hipólito Rovira.
