Palace of Mercadal

The Palace of Mercadal was built in 1737 by the orders of Sir Bernabé Bustamante Ceballos. The property later belonged to the Marquis of El Solar de Mercadal for that reason this palace is known as “Mercadal”. It is a simple building, that aims at representing aristocratic aesthetics from nearby buildings.

The plot in which it is located, next to the old path of the Royal Pathway of Burgos, has an entrance portal with a Baroque emblem of the Bustamante family. It is a square building, with two masonry facades and two of ashlar masonry, the main one stands out with two rounded arches on pillars with a big iron balcony above them. It takes its defining features from neighbouring buildings.
