Surrounded by orange trees and in the middle of the marshland, one of the most attractive natural enclaves of Gandia, is L´Alquería del Duc, an old medieval fortified farmhouse built during the 14th century, which served as a summer residence for the Dukes of Borja and later became a stately farmhouse for recreation and hunting.
It is a sturdy building with thick walls, square floor plan, two storeys topped with an Arabic tile roof with wooden beams and a central interior courtyard.

The building cannot be visited, as it is currently a tourist training centre of the Generalitat Valenciana, but it is certainly worth a visit from the outside. In the surrounding grounds we find the archaeological site of an ancient early Christian necropolis and the Interpretation Centre Aula Natura Marjal de Gandia.
