Moraga's Mansion

This lineage stands out in the city in the second half of the 15th century, because of one of its members (Juan Moraga) who attended the ceremony of homage that local nobility offered to the Queen Isabella the Catholic in July 1477. He was included in this act for the appointment of public charges made by the Queen by means of a draw.

They were related, as their coats of arms show, with –among others, the lineages of Mayoralgo, Orellana, Nidos, Carvajal, Aldana, Godoy and Monroy.
