Description

Built in the 16th century in the Renaissance style

Renaissance palace with a porticoed interior courtyard.

Also known as the Casa de las Veletas house, this palace was built in the 16th century on an earlier construction, whose 12th-century Arab cistern can still be seen today. On the exterior, the sober facade is crowned by a graceful balustrade adorned with pinnacles. Features on the interior include the Renaissance-style courtyard with semicircular arches supported on Tuscan columns. It is now the site of the Cáceres Museum.
