An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Casa Señorial Calle Lora

This typical baroque manor house is the epitome of local urban architecture in the 18th century. It was built by Alonso Ruiz Florindo, who modernised and improved his father’s style. The façade has a vertical portal with a balcony and viewpoint. However, the entrance is offset to the left, facing straight into San Sebastian Street, which runs perpendicular to Lora Street.

This is one of Alonso Ruiz Florindo’s signature buildings in local eighteenth-century architecture. Its beautiful façade consists of a lavish portal and a viewpoint framed by columns supporting semi-circular arches. The door is flanked by two carved stone estipites. On the upper level is a balcony with a tri-lobed arch framed by richly decorated pilasters. A frieze with various motifs crowns the ensemble. Inside is a porticoed patio with lobed and basket arches.
