Antequera Town Hall Tourism Department.  This building was erected in the early 18th century. The exterior, which is designed according to the”shell-façade” model, has got four axes, being the front on the right end. In the first section, made of red limestone from El Torcal, the door is flanked with two Tuscan columns supported by plinths which, in turn, support the classical entablature scantily decorated with triglyphs. The second section contrasts with the lower one not only because the materials (now, it is plastered brick) but also because the moldings: a profuse use of padding elements with an aspect of strength and heaviness. Through the hallway, we access to a large entrance hall where the stairwell is at one of its ends. This stairwell is undoubtedly the most interesting piece of the interior of the building. It has rectangular floor and two crossed flights. The handrail of iron starts from the landing. There is a half-barrel vault with lunettes  whose ends are finished with two semi-vaults on pendentives. The decoration is based on polychrome plasterworks. The main courtyard is quite simple and it only has got a column gallery in one of its fronts.
