Renaissance courtyard from the Vich palace at the Pio V museum

We are in the Renaissance courtyard of the ancient palace Vich, demolished in the 1850s, whose pieces were scattered to its final reconstruction within the museum of St. Pius V in Valencia.

The Valencian noble Jeronimo Vich y Vallterra (1459-1534), was ambassador of King Ferdinand and Charles I to the Holy See in the initial moments of splendor of the Renaissance, which he applied to his own palace on his return about 1527.

A beautiful combination of a fresh blue venetian plaster and white fine marble.
