Antequera Town Hall Tourism Department. It was constructed in the early17th century. The façade has got two floors and a large attic. It is divided into five vertical sections, plus another two which were added afterwards. The front is a very interesting example of the civil Mannerist style in Andalucia. The first section has got dressed Tuscan pilasters; the second section has got encased pilasters, entablature and triangular shaped pediment decorated with Jaca-style checkered mouldings. These pilasters are crowned with large triglyphs bordered with drops which are more protruding in the lower part. This is a resort very much used by the Italian Mannerist artists who were influenced by the Michael Angelo’s latest works. Behind a beautiful iron gate, we access to the interior of the Palace through a large hallway which is bigger on its left side and covered with a very simple coffering ceiling. The courtyard is quite original with regards to the local architecture, as it has got a single gallery wing with three overlapping loggias. It also has got Tuscan columns and half-barrel arches on the ground and main floors and architrave structure on the last floor. The galleries are open to a cozy garden which was renewed in the early of our century with certain Romantic air.
