Montanes House

This 18th century house combines all of the major European trends. The Andalusian patio has been built into the traditional Castilian stately home style, with English windows and Italian wooden balconies. The building has three floors.The ground floor was used for storage and the servants' quarters; the second floor was where the masters of the house lived and the top floor was used to store corn so as not to have to use the community corn exchange. The huge entrance door was made to suit the needs of the times and enable goods to be loaded and unloaded easily. As a courtesy to the men who drove the carts that transported those goods, there are public urinals at the entrance made of stone.
