Casa de los Girones


A Moorish mansion of the 13th century. It has as usual, a courtyard with a pond at the end and two separate porches. The entry was made at the corner of the courtyard around a bend to avoid the view from the outside. The rooms are  receiving light and ventilation from the courtyard. There are almost no windows to the outside facades. This was the palatial home of a wealthy man, the houses of citizens were usually very small and simple.

This building belonged to the family Giron in the 16th century. In the 14th century the building underwent a radical reformation. A upper gallery or tower was made; a part of the galleries of the courtyard and the staircase are still conserved.
