Construction began at the end of the 15th century and it is the prototype of the Andalusian palace.
It is of “Morisco” (Moorish-Christian) origin, although it also has Gothic and Plateresque elements. The entrance is Renaissance, with a Gothic roof crest. The main patio has Mudejar and Plateresque decoration. The Descanso de los Jueces (Judges’ Rest) Room has a beautiful arch covered in Mudejar and Gothic elements, an attractive tiled plinth and plaster frieze.
