Xativa: Land of the Borgias

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from €146,37 EUR / Adult
Take a journey through time to the proud town of Xátiva, "the city of the Borgias," a powerful family that came to prominence in the Renaissance and featured two popes, Alfons de Borja and his nephew Roderic de Borj. After a scenic drive to the city, tour by trolley to get to know the city on your way to its landmark attraction, Castell de Xàtiva. Built by the Iberians as a hilltop fortress, the castle has played a prominent role in conflicts from the Roman conquest to the Spanish War of Succession. Your time in the onsite museum will teach you about its use as a prison for political "celebrities" and the reign and influence of the Borgia family. After, see Collegiate Basilica of Santa Maria of Xàtiva, also known as La Seu, the main church of Xàtiva and a burial ground for the Borgias. Stop for lunch at an elegant hotel before returning to the ship.
