Quatre Carreres

The district of Quatre Carreres owes its name to the divisions and roads that entered on the side of Cap i Casal. Specifically referring to the four main roads (streets) that were going from Ruzafa, to the different parts where they end (east and south).

This section was annexed to the city in 1877 along with Ruzafa, whose municipality it once belonged to. It was and continues to be an area of orchards, with a very small and sparse population. In the 19th century, the entire district consisted of only a few farms, cabins and a couple of farmhouses.

To understand its annexation to Ruzafa, you have to know that in 1836, Quatre Carreres (Carrera del Río through Monteolivete towards Nazaret, Carrera de En Corts through the point of En Corts and La Punta to Pinedo, Carrera de San Luis through Fuente de San Luis towards Castellar-Oliveral and Carrera de Malilla towards the Horno de Alcedo), together with the current district of the Poblados del Sur became part of the municipality of Ruzafa and later was annexed to the city of Valencia.

Currently, the district is made up of seven neighborhoods: Monteolivete, En Corts, Malilla, La Fonteta de Sant Lluis, La Punta and the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciencies.
