Declared a national monument in 1969, visits to The Almudin are primarily motivated by its architectural importance, paintings, murals and popular iconographies from the XVII and XVIII centuries.
The pictorial work found inside forms a large part of the historic atmosphere felt in the building.
Built on a Muslim fortress at the beginning of the XIV century, the Almudín was dedicated to storage, distribution and sale of wheat in Valencia. The name “Almudin” derives from the Arabic word almud, which was a unit of measure for grains.
Initially smaller than today’s building, the Almudin was extended in the 15th and 16th centuries.
