Becerra's Mansion

It's a strong example of Cáceres' manor houses with its façade built in the late 15th century or early 16th with granite ashlars. The portal has a rounded arch with huge radiating voussoirs, over which there's a single twin-column window flanked by two coats of arms of Becerra's family and its alliances. The whole ensemble is framed by a Gothic alfiz with two zoomorphic gargoyles.
