This mansion built in 1735 by the Marquises of Pilares was the residence of noble families such as the Counts of Daóiz, the Counts of Miraflores and of the poet and livestock farmer of the Generation of 27, Fernando Villalón.

One of the outstanding features is the Plateresque façade, full of decorative elements such as the coat of arms of the Order of Calatrava, to which its first inhabitants belonged, its crests and its elegant wrought-iron balcony. It has a striking main courtyard with a double arcade and red jasper columns, a classic staircase and a plasterwork dome.

Declared an Asset of Cultural Interest, it was inaugurated as the Casa de la Cultura and headquarters of the Fundación Fernando Villalón in the year 2000.
