Overview

You'll find this palace on the corner of Plaza de los Bandos, close to the Plaza Mayor. Maria of Portugal stayed here when she came to Spain in the 16th century to marry Felipe II. The state telecommunications company, Telefónica, had the palace re-designed in a neo-plateresque style in 1934 with turrets like those on the Palacio de Monterrey, and use it as office space. The window looking over Calle Concejo is one of the few remaining features of the old palace. The main façade carries the coats-of-arms belonging to the Solís family. It is not opened to the public.
