"palace Monterrey" Palacio de Monterrey Tip by el_ruso

Palacio de Monterrey, Salamanca: 7 reviews and 15 photos

 
 

This huge palace is easily the most impressive of many Renaissance mansions in Salamanca. It was built in 1539 by Alonso de Acevedo y Zuñiga, third count of Monterrey and viceroy of Naples. The architect was Rodrigo Gil de Hontañon (who was the architect of the cathedral). It is so big I could not fit the whole building into the photo :D
