The old quarter


The old quarter of the historical burgh is full of examples of Gothic and modern civil architecture. The houses in Calle Trinquete (with the magnificent example of Casa Díaz), Las Eras, Santa Ana, Arriba and Bajada del Molino deserve special mention.

They are home to houses of fine masonry with pointed or semicircular doorways and wooden gables, and some bear coats of arms.

Most of the remaining shields and coats of arms on facades in the Burgh correspond to noble titles. Most worthy of note are the long series of coats of arms printed on tiles on the Palatial house of the Marquis of Argamasilla and two in stone belonging to different families who lived there.
