Casa de los Picos house. Segovia
Its most characteristic feature is its façade, which is covered entirely by granite blocks carved into pyramid-shaped reliefs.
The portal has a round arch with large voussoirs. Above the balconies is the coat of arms of the De la Hoz family, owners of the house. The entranceway and courtyard are decorated with tiles from Talavera, which have some of the buildings of Segovia painted on them. Currently it houses the Segovia Art School and exhibition hall.
