The Casa del que Mató al Animal

architect unknown?
16th century

A corner house, now the home of a newspaper, records a legend in stone at its main entrance. Versions of the story vary but the constant feature is a heroic man who kills an animal (snake?) terrorizing a community.

Plateresque ornament frames the entrance with scenes of hunting and foliage, including pomegranates.
