Casa del Almirante

Built by Admiral Diego de Barrios at the end of the 17C, the house is a fine example of a Baroque palace. You will notice a characteristic common to this type of palace, the pre-eminence given to the doorway in marble from Gênes, which combines Tuscan columns in the lower registry and wreathed columns in the upper.
