Palace of Counts of Adanero

Palace of Counts of Adanero or Palace of Ovando Rol is a building from 16th century with later refurbishments.

A striking component of this house is, without a doubt, its Baroque portal. It has a rectangular lintel, double-framed with carved ashlars, those outside being skewered by a column attached to the wall. Leaning on its grooved capitals, such a tympanum, there's a triangular alfiz. Some authors note about the Italian architecture influence in this portal.
