Description

It was commissioned by Alonso González de la Rúa, the accountant of the Catholic Monarchs. Its general appearance is sober, military. It is a Flamboyant Gothic palace from the 15th century. The most striking feature of the façade is the portal, a great entrance defined by a semicircular arch, made with voussoirs and decorated with the coats of arms of Rúa and Cienfuegos. In the interior of the building we find a covered courtyard and a beautiful garden.
