Provincial Goberment Building
The Palacio de la Diputación or regional government building is the most monumental civil building in the city, and is representative of the architectural style of the late-19th century and the works of architect Santiago Rebollar. Its construction was completed in 1892.
It has three different façades, and the main façade stands out in particular as it contains the city’s coat of arms as well as that of the Mercedarians, with a tribune of Ionic columns topped off with a pediment. Outside, the predominant materials are limestone and exposed brick.
One of the most outstanding elements in the interior is the main staircase, which has two paths and is topped off with a dome decorated by Ángel Andrade and Samuel Luna. Of particular interest in its galleries’ permanent exhibition are the works of Angel Andrade as well as those of other painters and sculptors from the province.
Opening times: 09:00 to 14:30 (Monday to Friday).
