Francesc de Borja was a multifaceted figure in Gandia city.

 Among all the roles he played, the exhibition recounts the actions he carried out in architectural and town planning matters.

The councillor for Historical, Artistic and Cultural Heritage, Alícia Izquierdo, confirmed the exhibition will open on September 15 and will run until December 11.

The exhibition will be hosted at the Sala Carròs i Centelles of the Palau Ducal dels Borja, according to Gandia Town Hall

The Town Council of Gandia and the Ducal Palace Foundation are part of the organisation of “The Duchy of Gandia in the time of the Borgias”.

According to the Commissioner: “The cession of the Carros i Centelles room is like a homecoming since this was the home of the first archaeological museum that existed in Gandia since 1892.”

At the exhibition, it will be possible to see 10 per cent of the complete and restored collections that the Archaeological Museum of Gandia has on the town of Gandia in medieval and modern times.
