Pelayo Gastro Trinquet

Our history

The story of an emblematic space.

The centenary Trinquet de Pelayo was inaugurated on August, 20th 1868. From its beginnings, this sporting venue became a reference point for the Valencian people's sport: pilota. Years later it acquired the nickname of "La Catedral de l'escala i corda". No pilotari is considered a leading figure without first having triumphed on its flagstones. Nowadays it is the only place for the game of Valencian pilota in the city of Valencia. Among the great figures who have triumphed in La Catedral are Nel de Murla, Alberto Arnal "Quart", Juliet d'Alginet, Antoni Reig Ventura "Rovellet", Paco Cabanes "Genovés" and, more recently, Francesc Xavier Puchol i Catalunya "Puchol II".

In 1976 a major refurbishment was carried out: it became a covered space, with artificial light, electronic scoreboards and more comfortable stands. In 2015, after a few months in which there were fears for the survival of the trinquet, it was acquired and restored again by a Valencian businessman. Finally, on 7 October, it reopened its doors to the delight of all fans of this sport.

Gastronomy & Sport

On October, 9th 2017, the gastronomic space that is currently Pelayo Gastro Trinquet was inaugurated. The restaurant, located in the anteroom of the sports complex, is the pioneer of the Gastro Trinquet Group in the city of Valencia. Since its inauguration, it has aroused great interest among València's residents, visitors and tourists alike. The sculptural ensemble created in "vareta" wood by the Fallas artist Manolo García presides over the room and creates the perfect setting to enjoy the cuisine of Pablo Margós and Chimo Faubell, executive chef and head chef, respectively. If you want the full experience, gastronomic and sporting, on Thursday and Saturday afternoons there are Valencian pilota matches.

our
menu

Our menu is based on Valencian gastronomy, local products and the touch of the embers, without forgetting both paella-style and creamy rice dishes. Finally, a sweet touch with modern versions of traditional Valencian desserts.

Chimo Faubell's suggestion

Sailor's Titaina. This is the most popular dish in the Cabanyal district. The version we prepare at Pelayo is really delicious. There is no better way to start a meal or to accompany a good "esmorzar".
