Golfines de Abajo Palace

Spanning two centuries and a suite of different decorative styles, the façade of this stately Renaissance mansion in Cáceres is one of the city’s architectural gems.

See the different architectural styles that vie for attention on the Golfines de Abajo Palace’s remarkable façade. Looming above one of Cáceres’ most architecturally impressive neighborhoods, the palace has a magnificent Gothic silhouette that is adorned with Plateresque flourishes. Join a tour of the historic building and learn about the noble residence that hosted the Catholic monarchs during their visits to the city.

Standing opposite the building in the Plaza de los Golfines, you’ll see the palace’s distinctive styles. The building was constructed by the wealthy Golfin family in the 15th century. Admire the Gothic fortress-style structure of the manor. If you look closely, you’ll see ornate Renaissance and Plateresque carvings and decorations atop the main façade. These were added in the 17th century alongside the semicircular arches and elaborate crests. Note the different sized towers that flank the façade, which feature segmental arches and carved animals.

Attend a guided tour of Golfines de Abajo Palace to explore its interiors. Inside, you’ll find a light-filled atrium with pretty colonnades and stone archways, as well as the ornate Salón de los Linajes (Lineage Room). Discover the history of the beautiful manor, which was furnished to be fit for the Catholic monarchs, Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castille, upon their two visits to Cáceres.

Golfines de Abajo Palace is located on the eastern edge of Cáceres’ historic center. It is situated in a neighborhood renowned for its exquisite architecture, so be sure to add the palace to your walking tour of the old town. The area is best explored on foot. Guided tours run for an hour and are available in Spanish, English, French and Portuguese by appointment. 

The palace is closed to visitors on Mondays and during a short period in the early afternoon. The manor is featured in historical walking tours in the area. There is a fee to visit, which is discounted for students and seniors. Children can visit for free.
