Chief Magistrate´s House

It is an example of late gothic mudéjar style.

The Chief Magistrate was a royal functionary and his mission was to represent the Crown within the municipal arena. Amongst his duties were, in addition to the one already mentioned: manage the economic and administrative development of the town, or act as judge in the Courts of First or Second Instance.

The typical pointed Gothic arch, combined with the plant decoration typical of mudejar art, together with the typically renaissance stone façade of the door, make the chief magistrate’s house a clear example of Castilian architecture from the c. XVI.
