Overview

This was part of a 16th-century palace which collapsed after three fires. In 1903 the patio was saved and sold to a French antiquarian who took it to his shop in Paris. In 1957, local Bank Ibercaja bought it and stored it until 1980, when the new bank was built. The name Infanta comes from Teresa de Villabriga, infante Luis' wife, who lived in the palace. This is the best Aragonese Renaissance patio. The pillars are very decorated and allude to love, Hercules' labors and monarchy. The reading of the patio is complicated with many symbols and interpretations.
