Description

The building was first mentioned in the eleventh century and the there is a romantic tale spinning around one of its early occupants, the princess Aixa Galiana, grand-daughter to the last arab king of Toledo, who after having been sent to Ávila for higher education fled with her sweet heart to Talavera.

History is present wherever you look: rebuilt in the 16th century there are many original features such as the hand-made floor tiles, original carved wooden ceilings, heavy wooden doors, the original well still in use and the historic bakery. Many seals and columns also date from this time.
