Monterrey Palace

Interesting
Built in 1539 for the third Count of Monterrey, the palace was designed along the lines of Spain's great royal castles by two of 16C Salamanca's greatest architects: Rodrigo Gil de Hontañon et Martìn de Santiago. The varied decorative and ornamental elements - Italian gallery and loggias on the upper storey, surmounting balustrade bedecked with trophies and pinnacles, chimneys, turrets and coats of arms - are expertly handled to give the palace its Renaissance style.
