Palace of Hernando de Ovando

Also in St Mary's Square, we can find this mansion built since 1519, in which the Renaissance style dominates although it has some Gothic elements in its right Tower.

Its Renaissance façade is significant, with rounded arch and entablature over pilasters, whose frieze holds a remarkable coat of arms. It includes two medallions with bust in the spandrels.

Its courtyard has a considerable size, with two-floor colonnades in three of its four sides. The fences of windows and balconies are made in beautiful wrought iron, some of them with coats of arms.
