Palace of the Marquis of Valverde
The façade offers stylistic equilibrium where elements of Florentine inspiration coexist
This palace was built around 1503 at the request of Juan de Figueroa, and underwent various restoration works in the same century. The front offers a stylistic balance where Renaissance elements of Florentine inspiration -the semicircular-arched doorway with rusticated voussoirs, parapet decorated with a mask, coat of arms of the Marquises Figueroa/Valverde, two sculptures of a man and a woman at the sides, corner windows crowned by women sculptures, mannerist medallions- coexist with others added in the restorations of the 17th and 18th centuries -plasterwork-. It was restored again in 1981 and is used as a dwelling.
