The Royal Shipyards are a large Gothic structur from medieval Valencia

If you find yourself in the Port area, the Royal Shipyards are a very short walk away. Reales Atarazanas (also known as Drassanes in Valenciano) is the oldest surviving structure of the Valencia's port, built in the Middle Ages for construction and repair of ships. As such, it is a very impressive, huge Late Gothic complex with characteristic sky-high arches. It currently houses modern art exhibitions.

History: the Shipyards were built in 1338 at the dawn of Valencia's maritime ambitions. They assumed their present look in 1500, after a reconstruction. During the War of Succession in XVIII century, Philip V made the Shipyards his headquarters. After the war, they became a depository for salt.
