Zaragoza blossomed in the 16th century. This striking palace is an example of the power of the nobility. It is also called Luna Palace and was built on the Roman wall. At the door two giants protect the entrance and threaten with a staff: they are Hercules and Teseus. The façade is flanked by two towers. In its interior there is a monumental patio which has ceramic tiles as a part of the decoration. The most famous member of the Luna family was Pedro de Luna, the last Pope of Avignon during the Christian schism, with the name Benedict the 13th. However, it is not open to the public.
