Josepa Doménica Català de Valeriola (1764-1814), better known as the Duchess of Almodóvar, was an aristocrat with a large list of titles of nobility. Considered the richest woman in Valencia. Only in the Marina Alta was she the Baroness of Xaló and Llíber, and lady of Gata de Gorgos. The palace before us was not built in the 18th century but much earlier, as indicated by the inscription we can see at the top of the wall, where we can read the date of construction, 1598. The original plot would occupy the whole area, it had gardens and a tower that housed a bell, which was later ceded to the church.
