Sculptures honouring the Borgias

Valencia
Gandia

In Plaza de las Escuelas Pías, opposite the doors of the Antigua Universidad, you'll find a group of sculptures consisting of five bronze statues made by Manuel Boix. They depict five of the most famous Borgia family members: Popes Calixtus III and Alexander VI, their children César and Lucrecia de Borgia and the 4th Duke of Gandía and patron of the city, Francisco de Borgia. The statues were placed in Plaza de la Antigua Universidad in 1998.

In Plaza Mayor, alongside the Colegiata (Collegiate church), there is another sculpture of Francisco de Borgia but this one shows him in his role as Duke.

Lastly, close to Convento de Santa Clara, there is a statue in honour of María Enríquez de Luna.
