Ribera's Mansion. Rectory of the University of Extremadura

Ribera's Mansion is a house from 16th century fully denatured after a refurbishment suffered in 19th century, from which probably no more than the round-arched portal with voussoirs and the family's coat of arms are still in existence. Later refurbishment completely altered both its interior, adapting it to the needs of an office building, as well as its façade. The courtyard was down to a small garden in which the well still remains.

The ancestor of the Ribera's family in Cáceres was Alfón de Ribera «el Doncel», son of the Adelantado of Andalusia, Don Perafrán de Ribera. In time of Banderías (disputes between nobility factions in 15th century) he was governor of the castles of Azagala and Alburquerque, and he met death when he left Seville in 1443, and a group of supporters of Infantes de Aragón killed him.
