Llerena

Visitors love sightseeing in Llerena, with its large number of monuments, palaces, mansions and convents, forming part of the ancient walled city of Llerena.


Just as you get out of the hotel, start your route visiting the Plaza Mayor, conceived as a spectacular plaza with magnificent balconies, galleries of arches resting on Moorish arcades, where formerly acts of faith and bullfighting where performed.


From the square the facade of the 17th century Town Hall is best seen, with its magnificent clock tower (Gothic/Mudéjar, 14th century) and beneath it the north face of the Parish Church of Nuestra Señora de la Granada, with a stonework Gothic entrance, embellished with the Papal Coat of Arms.


In the street of Zapataría, you can find the Prior or Episcopal Palace (Palacio Prioral o Episcopal) of the 15th century, first headquarters of the Holy Inquisition Court. The current Palace of Justice was also an inquisition seat, known as The palace of the Zapata after its first owner, counsellor of the Catholic Monarchs of the 16th century.


In the Convento y Iglesia de Santa Clara, in the Calle Corredera, some religious murals have been recovered and are now conserved in the Choir. Here in the closed convent traditional local sweets can be obtained.
