Located some twenty kilometers away from the provincial capital, Valencia, El Puig played a key role in the Reconquista of Spain from the Moors, which was led by Jaime I in this region. From his castle he planned his battle strategy, and in honour of his victory in 1237 he built the monastery called Real Monasterio de Santa María de El Puig. This edifice, declared a National Historical-Artistic Monument in 1969, still retains its Salón Real [Royal Quarters], which is for the exclusive use of Spanish monarchs visiting Valencia.
