Overview

Stand on the other side of Carrera del Darro and admire the fine Plateresque fa├žade before entering this beautiful Renaissance palace. It was built around 1539 for Hernando de Zafra, a soldier and nobleman who assisted the Catholic Monarchs in conquering the city. You'll see his coat-of-arms carved above the front door. Inside, after walking up the main staircase, you'll come into a central patio with galleries above you. The building is now home of the Archaeology Museum with a fascinating selection of artifacts ranging from the Paleolithic era to the Moorish occupation.
