The Hanging Houses were built in popular gothic style. Some original elements are preserved in the section occupied by the Museum, such as the coffered ceiling in Mudejar style and an Arch in Gothic isabeline style. The interior is rich in wood components. The front is Renaissance style and comes from an old palace.
The origin of the houses is uncertain, but there are documentary evidences of their existence in the 15th century. All the façade of the Huécar gorge held hanging houses, but only the famous ones still stand. They have been remodeled throughout their life and they were restored at the beginning of the 20th century. Nowadays, the Hanging Houses contain the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art and the Restaurant Mesón de las Casas Colgadas.
