What is fascinating for this building is the history in it. Very recommended to take the guided tour. The palace is very beautiful and it is the palace of the famous Borgia family (the Italian transcription of the Spanish Borja family name). Nonetheless this family gave two Popes - Alfons de Borja, who ruled as Pope Callixtus III during 1455–1458,... More

Nice villa for that times, you can see only 1 floor ( second) , the others floor i think that they are used. Nothing special for my part, a lot of the place is not original. 6 euro adults, 4 euro child and 2 euro audio

PalauBorja, Gerente at Palau Ducal dels Borja Gandia, responded to this review

Good morning Alin, thank you for your opinion. As you say, the only floor you can visit in the Palace is the second floor, because the other floors belongs to the begining of the 20th century, built by the Jesuits, the last owners of the building. Because of them, all the rooms you can't see are the Jesuit's residence and... More

This encapsulates the life of the Borgiaa and is well worth a visit if you like architecture, history or just pottering around a very stately home.

We visited here recently with friends. The Borgias really knew how to live, even after taking holy orders. If this is ecclesiastical poverty....well, bring it on! Spectacular interior design and decoration and rooms that drip with history. We enjoyed a tour with a guide who brought the rooms and family to life with her stories. The palace is also the... More

This was just a day visit in Gandia so time was limited. I am so glad that I chose to go to the palace. It is accessed through a small side street and its high plain walls give you no idea of the splendour that lies within. You enter the square courtyard and proceed to the upper floor. The whole...

Almost missed this place as it closed for lunch but literally stopped in my tracks by the Golden Gallery. €6 entry and doesn't take long to look around. The Neo-Gothic chapel ceiling is fabulous too.

This really is a hidden gem, hidden in plain site on a busy shopping street in the centre of Gandia. The building is still a Jesuit college and chapel but you can tour the state rooms of Frances Borja and it's a great place to learn some of the history of the Borja's and their place in papal history.
