Viso del Marqués
The most remarkable monument in the village is the palace of the Marquis of Santa Cruz, a great example of the Italian-style Renaissance palaces built between 1564 and 1588, which at present houses the archives of the Spanish Navy.
The palace's façade is quite austere, in contrast with the lavish interior. The courtyard, the staircase, and the halls are decorated with Mannerist frescoes. Embedded on the wall that faces the garden we find the Baroque sepulchral busts of don Alonso de Bazán, second marquis of Santa Cruz, and of his wife María de Figueroa, which date from the first third of the 17th century. In the square Plaza de Pradillo, located in the centre of the village we find, in addition to the palace, the Late Gothic parish church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, from the 16th century.
