In the city of Jaén, we find what is left of what was the Palace of Condestable (Palace of the Constable) Mr Miguel Lucas de Iranzo, a famous character from the last period of the Late Middle Ages in the province. It was built in the 15th century in a style that is reminiscent of the Mudejar style of Toledo: in the courtyard, below street level, a gallery with arches in late Gothic style is preserved, which must have formed a loggia or corridor which would lead to an interior courtyard. Particularly interesting are the courtyard and the Mudejar ballroom, whose interior is covered with a magnificent Mudéjar carved ceiling, the only example of this art in the whole city.

In the second half of the 19th century, it underwent a major transformation, with a theatre, several houses and the Casino Primitivo being built over part of the building. In 1892, the architect Justino Flores Llamas bought it and, in 1928, a lot of work was done on it, which altered its original appearance: inside it, we find magnificent Mudejar coffering and plasterwork, the main façade and some of its rooms date from this decade.

Nowadays, this palace is owned by the Jaén Town Council, which has installed the Municipal Department of Culture and Tourism in it. Thanks to this, despite all these vicissitudes, we can appreciate what is left of this palace and remember the monumental splendour that it may have had in its time.

Mudejar Hall Hours: From monday to friday from 9,00h to 14,00h and 16,00h-20,0h0 Saturday and sunday from 11,00h to 14,00h.
