Palace in the Renaissance style reformed in the 18th century

Palace in the Renaissance style reformed in the 18th century. The doorway is formed by a semicircular arch.

The house or palace of the Ovando family was built in 1519 in the Renaissance style, although it was reformed in the 18th century. It is one of the examples of palatial architecture in Cáceres during the 15th and 16th centuries. It was originally intended to have two towers, one on each side of the main facade; however one was never completed. The completed tower has a window decorated with an ogee arch. Of particular note on the façade are the grilles on the windows, and especially the doorway in the shape of a semicircular arch.
