Description

Palace in the monumental city of Cáceres.

This lovely palace is located in Cáceres, and was used as the residence of the Catholic Monarchs on their visits to this historic city.

Also known by the name of the Casa de los Golfines de Abajo, it is one of the finest stately mansions in the architecturally historic quarter of Cáceres. It has a Gothic structure, in keeping with the model of fortress-houses which were built during the 15th century, although its Plateresque decoration dates from the 17th century. The towers on either side of the façade have different proportions: taller on the right, and smaller on the left. The façade has a semicircular arch with crests at the sides. Above it are two windows, one with a grille and the other with a semicircular arch. This house was the residence of the Catholic Monarchs on their visits to the city.
