Other reviewers have given good historical facts about this stunning building. Walk around and let some of the history sink in. Spare a thought for Christopher Columbus who had to travel here all the way from the coast of Andalusia to provide a report on his second exploration!

One of the most beautiful buildings I have seen . The only pitty is that a Bank is inside like a parasit. Historical moments happened here long time ago that will not be forgotten.

Be sure and wall around the entire building, also if you are lucky there will be an art exhibit inside, so open later hours to see the inside courtyard. Otherwise you must be there at the normal hours that it is open, free to enter.
