Overview

This centrally located building is in one of the city's most interesting architectural areas, around the streets Paseo de Pereda and Calle Castelar. The concentration of late nineteenth and early twentieth century buildings here means that the whole neighborhood was declared an area of special historic interest in 1985.Built in 1902 near the bay, this block was designed to provide quality homes for Santander's wealthy elite. The yellowish limestone blocks used in its construction distinguish it from surrounding buildings. The exterior is embellished by balconies and round turret-style extrusions, topped by domes, at the corners. Pillars, corbels and other decorative elements are reminiscent of the Spanish Renaissance.Visits inside are not permitted.
