Valencia has grown a lot during the last century, incorporating thus the old fishing villages on the coast into the city. However, the city was founded originally a few kilometers off the coast, in order to prevent the attacks from sea pirates. The city port was called El Grau (Port in Valencian language).

The main road running through the Xerea District is and has traditionally been called Sea Street, for it connects the old city center with the Sea Gate and the access to El Grau Harbour.
