The Almudin was built in 1417 on a Muslim fortress. In ancient times it was much smaller but in the Sixteenth Century is was extended. The Almudin was the main building for the storage, distribution and sale of wheat to the entire city of Valencia.
The Almudin is a rectangular building, similar to a Roman basilica. The interior is divided into three naves where the central one is larger than the other two. These naves are divided by semicircular arches in the north, south and east part, while in the west part consists of pointed arches. Inside the Almudín, on the arcades of three of the walls, you can see murals in tempera dating back 1607. These murals represent the delivery of wheat in the city and characterize the saint patrons that operated in the grain trade.
The ending role of the Almudin was dedicated to act as a municipal museum for the Paleontological Museum from 1908 to 1991 and from 1996 on, house temporary exhibitions.
Due to the role that it once occupied, the Almudin is one the most important monuments in Valencia.
