Overview

This building located next to Toledo Cathedral was built in 1575 when Baroque style architecture was taking over from the Renaissance style. It resembles El Escorial as its builders were the same, Juan de Herrera, Nicolas de Vergara el Mozo, Juan Bautista Monegro and Jorge Manuel Theotocopuli. It has two floors with impressive towers on each side with Madrid-style spires. Inside, there is a beautiful staircase where some of the famous poems of the Mayor, Gomez Manrique, are reproduced. The Moorish arch that gives access to the Town Hall is also worth a special mention.
