Description

The Mendoza family, the bearers of the title of dukes of El Infantado, expressed all their power in this building, which is the most representative property in their possession.

The original Gothic building with many Mudéjar details was commissioned by the second Duke of El Infantado from Juan Guas, who began it in 1480. In 1569, the fifth Duke adapted it to the Renaissance taste, adding balconies and replacing the columns on the ground floor of the Lions Courtyard. He also commissioned Romulo Cincinato to create frescos in various rooms; some of these paintings still survive as a unique testament to the splendour of these apartments.After its virtual destruction in a bombardment in 1936, its most representative elements –the Courtyard of the Lions, the façade and the Garden Gallery– were restored in 1961 - 1973. It is currently the site of the Museum of Guadalajara.
