Ontinyent preserves a lovely late medieval old town with alleys and some gates that were the entrance to the town when it was protected by a wall, of which some sections are still standing. The most emblematic gate is known as the Portal de San Roc. It is on the way to the Palace of the Duchess of Almodóvar, or the Palau de la Vila, initially in the Valencian Gothic style but greatly changed by successive reforms. However, the most striking building in Ontinyent is undoubtedly the Gothic-Renaissance archpriest church of St Mary, with the tallest bell-tower in the Community of Valencia, 71m high.
