In the heart of the Nou Moles neighborhood is one of the new benchmark spaces for Valencian culture, the Alquería Julià, the current headquarters of the Federation of Musical Societies of the Valencian Community ceded by CaixaBank.
A building that was declared a National Monument in 1978 and an Asset of Cultural Interest in 2007 – the highest level of protection for a building in the city of Valencia – housed the Colegio de Santa Bárbara until the 1990s. Restoration architect Carlos Campos has been in charge of the rehabilitation, recovery and restoration project of this 1,986-square-meter plot, with a 692-square-meter construction distributed over two floors and an additional 51-square-meter tower. As for the garden, it has been restored with the collaboration of the landscape designer María Teresa Santamaría.
The building can be considered one of the few preserved examples of a Valencian farmhouse from the 17th century. In addition to its historical interest, the Alquería still preserves aesthetic elements of great value that have been rehabilitated such as paintings, frescoes, sgraffito, paving or traditional Valencian tiles, as well as a large patio with a garden, full of tree species that recreate the original garden of 1932.
