Miguel de Mañara Palace


The Miguel de Mañara palace, situated on Levíes street, was built by the Almansa family in the 15th century on the remains of previous constructions, including a Mudejar house. The house fits in with Renaissance typology, though with slight modifications at a later date. As regards the first constructions on which the Renaissance palace was based, some plinths have been conserved its murals in one of the rooms on the ground floor, probably carried out in the second third of the 15th century. The Mañara palace conserves a collection of screens of Jewish origin. Curiously, they almost all have different designs. It is the Seville façade which best conserves these elements. Levíes street where it is located gets its name from Samuel Ha-Levi, the treasurer and main book-keeper of King Pedro I.
