Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Ayuntamiento de Fuentes de Andalucía


The Lisbon earthquake destroyed the old town hall. In 1763, it was decided to appoint two architects to build a new building. The project submitted to the Royal Academy of Fine Arts by the local master-builder Alonso Ruiz Florindo was rejected owing to its baroque style. The design that was ultimately accepted was by Ventura Rodríguez, the Court’s chief architect. It consisted of a neoclassical-style building, devoid of ornaments, that was eminently functionalist. The main appeal of the building is that it is one of three works in Andalusia by this renowned architect.
