The Palace Of The Marquis De Dos Aguas

A lot of historic buildings in Valencia have beautiful doors, but the grand prize must go to the Palacio del Marqués de Dos Aguas. Even without its ostentatious marble entryway, it would be among the top sights in Valencia, having been fully restored and retaining much of its original furniture and decoration.

The palace was constructed in 1750 for the Rabassa de Perelló family, who held the title 'Marqués de Dos Aguas.' The family was wildly wealthy, and spared no expense for their urban residence, employing the kingdom’s most-exalted artists and architects in its construction.
