Neighborhood: Sancti-Spiritus

In the little central square, away from the more touristic area and opposite the Castilla and León Assembly building, stands this imperial-looking tower belonging to the old 15th-century palace which the Fermoselles had built. It was thought for some time that the palace had originally had four towers, but this incorrect assumption was based on the fact that the tower had once been owned by the Barón de las Cuatro Torres (Baron of the Four Towers). Its unique Italian-style Gothic tower is beautiful, with many windows, some of them with flamboyant Gothic-style decorations, which seem asymmetrical. The palace is now occupied by a religious order and is not opened to the public.
