Palacio de Carvajal


Just off the northeastern corner of the main Plaza de Santa María stands this late-15th-century mansion. The building was abandoned after fires tore through in the 19th century. Now restored, it houses a modern display on the province’s attractions and the helpful regional tourist office.
