Valencia Things to Do: 525 reviews and 1,179 photos
Boats Street bifurcates into the pedestrian Sir John of Habsburg Street, one of the main commercial axes in the city, and Painter Sorolla Street. This area of the city is where most aristocrats and wealthy people chose to build their palaces and residences in the XVIII and XIX centuries. Later on, it was the banks that decided they would like to have their offices here and many of these palaces succumbed to speculation and were replaced with impersonal bureau buildings.
One of the few original palaces that have survived is the palace of the Count of Peñalba. Of course, it is not inhabited any more, but hosts the headquarters in the city of a financial institution.
After all, who wants to live amidst all that traffic?
