VELADA PALACE

Plaza de la Catedral 10

The Velada family was one of the most powerful in the city. Noblemen, knights and even Isabella the Catholic and Charles V were guests at this palace. For the last 20 years it has been a four star hotel where weddings, conventions and conferences are held. In the palace can see a door which was shifted along the façade so that it wouldn’t coincide directly with the inner colonnaded courtyard. It is a defensive system to hinder the enemy’s entrance. Its exterior is marked by a high tower, and the numerous crests and marlons. The renaissance interior is decorated with coats of arms and five petals flowers.
