This square is dedicated to the 19th century conservative poet and deputy, Teodoro Llorente, who lived in the building opposite in the photo.

The statue is dedicated to the painter Ribera. This sculpture underwent several transfers until it was located in this square.

Here was also the tower of Ali Bufat, demolished in 1865. It was famous because here the Muslims raised the banner of Jaime I as a sign of the surrender of Balansiya, the Muslim Valencia.
