The last decades of the XV century coincide in Valencia with such important figures as the Borgia, King Alfonso V or the writers Ausias March or Joanot Martorell. A lively and flourishing Valencia that is nourished by its economy and its outstanding architecture. Discover it by the hand of our guides. The splendor of Valencia coincides with the strengthening of the Trastámara house and its direct support to the bourgeois class, assuring their rights as they had been granted by Jaume I. After several conflicts within the crown of Aragon Valencia it is chosen by the king’s court as an economic center, making of it the intellectual and social focus of the fifteenth century. Our Golden Century will materialize the expansion of the crown of Aragon in the Mediterranean, the introduction of new crops, the consolidation of a flourishing trade based on the silk or the splendor of the Valencian literature.
