Description

A magnificent jewel of the civil Baroque architecture of Cordoba. It has been recently restored and converted into a museum and Visitor Centre for the town of Lucena.

It is a palace or manor house that belonged to illustrious local families. Two aspects stand out in particular: first, the façade, with its Baroque columns and entablatures, using veined marble from Cabra, which decorate the doors and windows on the two floors;
second, in the interior, which is laid out around two arcaded courtyards, a Baroque staircase in one of the courtyards is decorated with 18th-century tiles from Seville. It is covered by a Rococo dome, with decorative plasterwork work depicting architectural motifs and noble coats of arms.
As a result of the restoration work that ended in March 2011 with the opening of the rooms forming the Visitor Centre of Lucena, a Roman sculpture of the god Cupid was discovered, together with a number of neoclassical murals.
