  • Origin of Ruzafa comes from a leisure estate built by Abd Allah Al-Balansi in the IX century at about 2 km from the city of Valencia. He wanted to copy his fathers (Abderramán I) building near Córdoba. This estate seemed not to last long as Al-Balansi’s children weren’t living in Valencia. However, the gardens around the estate remained untouched and were used for recreational purposes as a public park.
