The Noble Hall is located in the Town Hall of Alzira, which was originally the former Palace of the Marquises of Santiago. It is of Gothic Renaissance architecture, dating from the sixteenth century and completed in the early seventeenth century (1603), as stated in the Catalogue of Monuments and Sites of the Valencian Community.

The Town Hall is an administrative building that is located in the axis of the old town, Renaissance style and built between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It was declared a Historic-Artistic Monument on December 17, 1930.

The noble hall, of almost 107 m2, occupies the first bay of the first floor, along the entire facade facing the street of San Roc. It is the venue for representative acts and civil ceremonies, as well as for traditional events such as the "crida de las Fallas" and the celebrations of San Bernardo and San Silvestre, in commemoration of the Reconquest.

This Hall is accessed from the inner courtyard through a wide wooden door lined on the outside with embossed plate with the coat of arms of the city, and ornamentation of neo-baroque motifs around the opening. It has three windows facing Sant Roc street, in correspondence with the openings on the first floor. They are of Gothic style, built in stone, apparently prepared to rest on mullions with small semicircular arches.

The coffered ceiling in triangles with golden fleurons designed by Pedro Gibado and the pavement, formed by black and white ceramic pieces with geometric shapes, combined with other pieces of red and black clay defining floral ornaments, stand out in this room.

On the side wall is installed an altarpiece of great patrimonial value dedicated to San Silvestre of 1597, built in polychrome wood and made by Vicente Requena.
