The Old Benimaclet Road
The Old Benimaclet Road (Camino viejo de Benimaclet) is the road the inhabitants of Benimaclet used during over a thousand years to enter Valencia by way of the Trinidad Bridge. It was used already during the Muslim period, before King Jaime I arrived, and quite probably it existed already in Roman times.
The Old Benimaclet Road began in Valencia Street (nowadays Barón de San Petrillo) and continued along what is now Cuenca Tramoyeres Street. On its right was the Rubio Academy (later the Claret School), to its left what used to be the pretty little Fresas Street, and straight ahead the Tramoyeres building (popularly known as “la Colmena”, the beehive).
